If you do not have a large garden to plant your vegetables, you can always plant them in containers. The only thing you will need to adhere to is the requirements of the plant. You might also need to get the right kind of seeds if you want to have a successful harvest. In this article, we explore some to the best vegetables that you can easily grow in containers at home.
This is probably the most popular vegetable you can grow in a container. Tomatoes do not require much attention. They love a well-drained, deep soil and they are easily affected by cold and frost. When they grow, they might need staking so that the fruits do not bend and break the plant stem.
This is a perennial plant that grows very quickly. It is a great salad as well. Lettuce do well in the cold season. Just make sure that there is enough space in the container for them to thrive. Unlike tomatoes, lettuce do not grow deep, they grow wide. The soil has to be moist and well drained for best results.
These are also great for salads and grow very quickly as well. Radishes love deep, well drained and moist soils. There are many varieties out there. Almost every part of this vegetable is edible. When planting, make sure that you give enough spacing between each plant.
Peas love a moderately warmer climate and that is why you should consider planting in early spring. They are fast growing and do well in moist, well-drained soils. The beauty of this vegetable is that it adds nitrogen to the soil. Creating an ideal environment for the next crop.
Depending on the type, squash can grow huge and occupy a lot of space. That is why you might need to grow the vegetable in a large container. They love natural light and well drained soils. Although they can survive the winter cold, they do not react well to frost.
Both hot and sweet peppers are perfect for growing in containers. They love the sun and do better in well-drained soils.
This is another delicious vegetable (it’s actually a fruit) that grow well in containers and comes in all shapes and colors. Eggplants love well, well drained soils. They also do well in the sun and warmer climates.
The cold season brings out the flavor of carrots better. They love a good, well drained and deep soil. Make sure that you water occasionally. This is to prevent the roots from drying up and cracking.
Potatoes love deep soils where the roots can thrive. They come in all sizes and types. You might need a bigger, wider and deeper container if you want your potatoes to grow well. Make sure the stems are well covered with soil.
They can withstand cold and love well-drained soils. The soils should be loose and deep to allow them room to grow freely. They are easy to grow as they do not require much attention after planting.
