How can I enjoy beautiful plants/flowers without all the work?

Soil for your container plants

ALWAYS buy potting soil mix for your container garden. I can't emphasize this enough: ALWAYS potting soil, NEVER 'ground' dirt. The potting soil is formulated for root aeration and moisture retention - a must for houseplants and Container Gardens!! I usually buy the 16-17 lb. size; and like Proterra or MiracleGrow (this latter even offers soil with a fertilizer already in it), which can be found at Targets, Home Depot, KMart, etc. I find the packaged soil cheaper at these locations than at specialty garden stores.
