Overview

Growing vegetables in containers is a great way to grow fresh food without needing a lot of space. Almost any vegetable that will grow in a typical backyard garden will also do well as a container-grown plant.

If your vegetable gardening is limited by insufficient space or an unsuitable area, consider raising fresh, nutritious, homegrown vegetables in containers. A window sill, a patio, a balcony or a doorstep will provide sufficient space for a productive mini-garden. Container vegetable gardening is a sure way to introduce children to the joys and rewards of vegetable gardening. (5 pages)
