A gardening and farming expert from Texas named Destin Noak, known on TikTok as @TexasGardenGuy, has garnered a following of nearly 100,000 users thanks to his videos teaching him how to build thriving gardens.

If you’re new to the game, you might want to start with a smaller container garden.

Destin shared five tips for successfully building one:

THE VESSEL ITSELF

The first step, according to the expert, is finding the right container for your needs.

“Do your research and find out how big the root ball will be so you don’t have to keep repotting into larger pots.”

It’s better to get it right the first time.

GROUND

You should make sure you choose a soil that will allow your plant variety to grow as it is intended.

Destin begins drilling drain holes in his container.

Next, he fills it up with leaves, sticks, and grass.

“And then I top it off with a layer of premium compost.”

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

While some plants need direct sunlight, others want more shade, so check what your plants need beforehand.

“The best thing about container gardening is that if your plant needs more sunlight, you can easily move it around.”

THIRSTY

Container gardens require more water than you think and you never want to let them get too dry.

“They need to be watered more often because the pots drain so well.”

COLD WEATHER

His last tip looked at how to save your plants during those annual temperature drops.

“You can save your containers from freezing.

“Container gardens can be brought indoors during the winter months.”
