Seeds or Seedlings
Now, the first question that arises when growing the plant is where to start – seeds or seedlings. It depends on the specific plant, but there are some key benefits to seeds. The first thing is the price – seeds are very inexpensive. Seeds make hard-to-find plants easily accessible to you. The only drawback here is, unless you take sharp care, your seedlings may die easily.
A large seedling will survive slightly harsh environments, but others will easily die because of slight drought. You can easily slow seeds directly into your ceramic outdoor pots. If the weather isn’t suitable, you can sow your seeds into pots by keeping them indoor. The seed requirements are also good to keep in mind.

Many gardeners will feel satisfied in blending their own homemade potting soil, but I recommend buying bags of good quality potting soil. There are some crucial things here. It saves time and when you purchase in a bulk, it saves money. Unless you’re a pro in gardening, it’s better to get ceramic outdoor pots garden soil from nurseries or plant stores. Your potting soil mix may have defects or the proportion wasn’t right. In those cases, your plants will have hard time dealing with proper growing.
Ceramic outdoor pots’ gardening offers lots of benefits, but the biggest issue with such gardens are drought. The soil may turn dry rapidly depending on the soil mix and plants. Ensure a regular flow of water. Avoid droughts and floods. The ceramic outdoor pots size also matters. Lack of root space may result in symptoms of nutrient deficiency and wilting.

My suggestion is to start your garden at the starting of summer as it is ideal season for planting and growing plants. Remember to feed the soil with essential nutrients for your ceramic outdoor pots’ plants. Don’t put a lot of fertilizer at the same time within the mix. Instead, apply small doses of water soluble fertilizer every couple of weeks/months to keep the plants healthy. It’s really effective for a better harvest.
