Container gardens are starting to become more and more popular because they are great for people who do not have adequate space to grow plants in a big backyard. Container gardens require much less space than a traditional garden and they also can be placed at a height so you avoid bending. There are all different shapes and sizes of containers that you can use depending on what plants you are trying to grow. Just make sure that you put these plants in an area where they will get the necessary amount of sunlight.
- Most vegetables can be grown in containers, especially ones that are smaller and bushier.
- You can contact the ISU Extension for more information on growing in small containers.
- Anyone is capable of growing vegetables anywhere, including in apartments.
“You can use a variety of flowerpots or larger containers, such as large plastic buckets, or build raised bed gardens.”
