Container Gardening – 8 Easy to Grow Veggies

Any vegetable that grows in the ground can be grown in a container. Some crops, such as corn and pumpkins, might not be worth the effort. You don’t need to stick to so-called patio (dwarf) varieties. The majority of standard-size veggies are ideal for container culture. For carrots and beans, strategy to sow seeds directly in the soil-filled container. Grow other types of veggies from seed, or purchase ready-to-plant s. Eggplants, tomatoes, and peppers began from seed take about 8 weeks to establish seedlings ready for transplanting.
