The needs of plants are simple enough. They need light and water. However, there are always questions. What is the best position for a plant?. How do I know when a plant should be watered?. How do I prepare my planter or WindowBox?. Also, is raised bed gardening for me?.
             The more you know the better your plants will grow. Plants needs are fairly simple. They need water, air and light. A plant takes water from the soil and carbon dioxide from the air through stomata in its leaves. The leaves also contain chlorophyll that is used  to take energy from the sun. The plant then combines this energy with water, carbon dioxide and nutrients taken from the soil which it converts into glucose and oxygen on which it lives.
