When it comes to container gardening, there are a few things you absolutely need in your arsenal. Of course, you can go to a home improvement store with a garden department, but I like to read reviews so Amazon is a great place to look for gardening essentials!
I was perusing Amazon for adorable critter pots last week, and this week I’m stocking up on some container gardening essentials.

Container Gardening Essentials
It’s important to have a hand nozzle with multiple stream options. You may want to use the mist or sprinkle option for delicate plants – especially when they’re newly potted or sprouted.
This one has 9 stream options and has 4.5 stars!
I don’t mind a little dirt underneath my fingernails most of the time, but when I’m really digging, I prefer to wear gardening gloves. These are similar to what I use and are 5 stars on Amazon!
Seriously, you don’t need a ton of tools for container gardening (thank God!). These will do just fine. I love that there are measurements on the back of one of these spears because you can see just exactly how deep you’re planting.
When planting from seeds, I have a lot more luck starting them in these adorable little starters.
We used whiskey barrels for our vegetables and I love the way they look in our back yard!
My dad attributes his (very) green thumb to Miracle Gro and fresh goat manure. Last I checked, you can’t get goat manure on Amazon, but you CAN get this shake and feed.
Pruning shears are used for more than just cutting things back. These are what I prefer to use to cut the veggies off their vines – especially squash because it can be prickly.
I mean, duh. Potting soil is a definitely necessity. I really like this one because it has moisture control!

Y’all… a potting bench has been on my wishlist since we put in an offer on our house. I think this would be SO helpful. Maybe someday soon…
