What a gorgeous tropical container planting!
Container gardening is my preferred method since I detest digging through tree roots and I really don't enjoy using a big shovel . . . guess it is a girl thing. It is so much easier to plant in containers . . . much easier to manage!
Grouping the same type plants with the same nutritional and drainage needs is a good idea for optimum plant health, using a specific soil mix that is well suited for the plants.
