Best Pot Garden?

ShekiaCori WidenJanice


I don't have space for a traditional vegetable garden so I've been creating a deck garden in pots. What are the best vegetable plants for pots?

    Just about any vegetable will grow in a pot as long as it is a large enough pot for the mature size of the plant. Make sure you support any plant that needs it or cage to contain. I would not do winter squash, watermelon or such large veggies as it would be too hard to contain and support both the vine and the fruit of the veggie. I do herbs in ten to twelve inch pots and not in garden because too many grow huge and get very invasive. I hope this helps!

    check with a few on line gardening sites re: container gardening it should give you ideas on how big a continer you will need for which plants.

    Green beans, peas do great in pots. As do tomatoes and peppers. Potatoes grow great in 5 gallon buckets. Once they are ready you dump the bucket onto a tarp pick out the potatoes without damaging them put dirt back in the bucket cover and you are done. J

    We just started with tomatoes in pots - so far, so good!
