  • Veggies for Container Garden

    Created by Anonymous on

    I would like to know what vegetables grow best in containers, I already know tomatoes and peppers. What else? I would especially like to know about veggies that do well with a short growing season. Thanks!

    Almost any vegetable can be adapted to growing in a pot. Vegetables that take up little space, such as carrots, radishes and lettuce, or crops that bear fruits over a long period of time, such as tomatoes and peppers, are perfect for container vegetable gardens. I have found that herbs also make excellent container gardens.
    What you can grow in a container vegetable garden is limited only by the size of the container and your imagination. You can also find information on our website containergardeningguru.com.
