Container Gardening
If you have poor garden soil, limited space, not enough sun, or impaired mobility, you may want to try growing vegetables in containers. Containers allow for an easy, movable garden with the opportunity for a high yields and a big payoff! Container gardening also offers better pest management. Container vegetable gardening is also a great way to introduce children to gardening.

The one thing to remember with container gardening is that containers need frequent watering. Since the root system is restricted by the size of the container, some plants may produce smaller fruit, and some vegetables don't grow well in containers. We have made it easy for you to select the right varieties of vegetables for a container garden. Everything on this page will grow well in a container!

Choosing a Container Size
Tomato plants will grow best in containers of at least 22" diameter, peppers grow best in 16" diameter pots, and vining crops require a 20" or larger container. Lettuce, spinach and other greens have shallow root systems and thus do well in longer, flat containers. Another way to approach container size is to think in terms of 1 to 2 gallon container capacities for peppers, chard and dwarf tomatoes, while 4 to 5 gallons per plant is best for tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and eggplants.

These easily portable pots are made so that your plant roots can breath and create a more healthy environment for your plants.
