One thing I have been reading a lot about in some books I have on apartment gardens is that your pots need to have drainage holes in the bottom. I never knew this, as there are many pots you can buy that don’t have holes in the bottom. I have made the switch and purchased pots with drainage holes however, so I anticipate this will lead to much healthier and hardier plants. In Amy Pennington’s “Apartment Gardening” book she says that if you do purchase those big pretty coloured ceramic pots you should get holes drilled into the bottom of them. Who knew?
