Grow Your Favorite Vegetables in a Container

Enjoy the convenience of planting, tending and harvesting fresh vegetables grown in pots on your patio, balcony or entryway.

Consider some of the compact varieties suited to container gardening. Bush Early Girl produces 4-inch tomatoes on a compact plant. Patio Choice tomato will yield up to 100 yellow cherry tomatoes on an 18-inch-tall plant. Or fill a hanging basket with Tumbling Tom Yellow, Lizzano, or Terenzo trailing cherry tomatoes. You’ll enjoy the colorful display and abundant fruit these plants provide.

Include a few sweet and hot peppers in your containers. Many, like Cajun Belle, produce colorful fruit on compact plants. You’ll enjoy the colorful display and mildly spicy heat of this sweet pepper.

Train a few pole beans and sugar snap peas up a trellis for screening and easy picking.

A bit more information: Then up the ornamental appeal with colorful greens, like Mizuna Red Kingdom Japanese mustard, Bright Lights Swiss Chard, Tricolor sage and golden oregano.  Add a bit of texture with curled parsley and savoy cabbage.
