Vegetable Container Gardening

from: home gardening


There is nothing like the fresh taste of your own home grown vegetables or the satisfaction you receive from growing them yourself. Many individuals who live in apartments or condos give up on the idea of having a vegetable garden. Others decide that it will take up too much of their time. Growing your own produce does not have to take up a lot of space or time if you use the vegetable container gardening method. The containers fit easily on a deck or balcony and due to the smaller size and easy accessibility these vegetables gardens do not take a huge amount of time to take care of either.

Just about any vegetable grows well in a traditional garden pot will also do just fine with vegetable container gardening. If you feel more confident using a seed designed specifically for containers, some seed companies offer that option. Check for words like bush, space saver, dwarf, or compact. These smaller versions are designed especially to grow well in containers.

As far as which vegetables to grow you are only limited by your personal taste. Salad lovers might want to grow a variety of lettuces. Buttercrunch and Bibb lettuces do well in vegetable container gardening. Cucumbers are also a very popular choice. Varieties you may consider trying are Bush Pickle and Spacemaster. Toy Boy, Small Fry, and Pixie are tomato plants that grow very easy in containers. They are an excellent addition to a salad themed container garden too.

Do not forget about the vegetables that are great cooked as well. Eggplant grows easy using the Bambino and Slim Jim varieties. Your Eggplant Parmesan will be the tastiest and freshest ever using home grown eggplant. Squashes are an excellent choice as well. They also do well in fall dishes. Vegetable container gardening will add a lot of choice and variety to your dinner table.

When choosing a container to use for your vegetable garden, there are some factors to keep in mind. You could use the plastic pots for sale everywhere or buckets, washtubs, and bushel baskets have been used with a lot of success. As long as you can put drainage holes in the bottom, any container will work well. You may want to avoid dark colored containers as they attract more heat and might make it too hot for your plantsí roots. Tomatoes and eggplant will grow better in larger pots, like a six gallon bucket. Most of the other vegetables will do fine in smaller containers averaging 2 to3 gallon size.

Vegetable container gardening is a fun and productive hobby. You have control over what you grow and have the peace of mind of knowing your vegetables are safe and disease free.
