    Hi Evelyn, have you looked into miracle grow veggie fertilizer? That might help quite a bit! Most vegetables are sun loving so I would move them to spot on your patio where they can get the absolute most sun possible.

  • It depends on the type of vegetable you're trying to grow... tomatoes need a lot of sun, so try to put those in the sunniest spot available. I would recommend looking up each vegetable individually to find out how much sun and water they need. Also, some do better than others in containers. Good luck!

    Check to be certain you don't have aphids. They can stunt growth. I also only use MiracleGro. Agree that most veggies need lots of sun but check. How is the watering? Water until it comes out the drainage holes and then allow to dry up to the first knuckle on your finger.

    On tomato plants, snip bottom leaves (they sap energy from the rest of the plant) and plant the tomato deep, half way up the stem. Agree with miracle grow or some type of plant food or fertilizer.

    I looks like they may not get enough sun. Also, about he tomatoes. Don't know if you've grown them before, but to get the best out of them, pinch off those little 'suckers' that start between the branch and stem. They suck up energy that can go to the making of the tomato, and give you nothing in return. Good luck with your 'garden'. :)

    Hi Evelyn - it looks like the pots are shaded by the building. Can you move them to an area where they get full sun. Make sure they are getting enough water and fertilize them with a fertilizer designed for vegetables. I like organic fertilizers. Good luck and happy gardening!

    Hi Evelyn,

    Once a week I fertilize mine with whats called fish fertilizer. You mix it with water and it is organic. It works well and keeps the plants fed. Good Luck!
