Spring is coming (yay!) and it’s not too early to start planning your garden. A lot of people have small space gardens. They may have a patio or balcony garden, a rooftop garden, a small space near their home … the list goes on and on.
One method that’s ideally suited for small space gardening is the use of containers. Many people grow vegetables, herbs and flowers in pots and larger containers. It’s important to pick plants that are better suited for container gardening.
In this article, Farhan shares 15 of the best vegetables that grow well in containers or pots. What I like very much is that the author discusses specific varieties of (mostly) vegetables.
You’ll find recommendations for:
- Cole Crops (These are members of the mustard (Brassica) family – Cauliflower, Broccoli, cabbage)
- Lettuce and Other Greens
When in doubt, look for vegetable seed varieties that are labeled baby, tiny, midget, or dwarf. These varieties will likely do well in containers.
Here are just a few of the vegetable varieties mentioned in the article. These are ideal for container gardening:
- Red Ace Hybrid Beets
- Derby Beans
- Thumbelina Carrots
- Bush Hybrid Cucumbers
- Watermelon Bush Sugar Seeds
- Green Arrow Peas
