TOMATOES: Five-gallon buckets are the perfect size container garden vessel for one tomato plant. PEPPERS: Peppers grown in container gardens need 2 things: water, and 5 hours of light each day. HORSERADISH: Most gardener’s issue with homegrown horseradish is that it spreads so easily it can be hard to control, which makes it perfect for a container garden!
CUCUMBERS: This cocktail calls for small varieties of cucumber like Beit Alpha Cucumber. These plants climb, so they're great for trelling up a patio. MINT: Mint is perfect for container gardens because it spreads rapidly. Keeping it in a pot keeps it under control. EDIBLE FLOWERS: Flowering basil and bachelor’s buttons are some of our favorites for container gardens.
LEMON TREES: Dwarf varieties of lemon trees are ideal for growing in planters and offer edible blossoms and fragrant leaves as well. Lemon trees need good drainage, so make sure their planter has ample drainage holes. STRAWBERRIES: Strawberry plants are a container garden classic! These beauties come back year after year requiring little to no maintenance.
LAVENDER: Lavender is one of the easiest and most rewarding edible flowers to grow in a container garden. It has both edible and medicinal qualities so you can make everything from cocktails to tinctures.
