    Default Container Gardening

    Could someone please let me know which veggies grow best for container gardening? I want to get started soon but have no clue where to start. I don't want to waste my money if a particular veggie doesn't do good in containers. Thanks!

    Pam,
    I've done the same as Carolyn but have also had success with potatoes yes bell peppers do great in a container. If you do potatoes be sure you use like a 5 gallon bucket so they can grow down. I'm going to try squash in one this year. Best of luck.

    Sorry, I'm no help here. We only grow flowers in containers.

    Thanks Ladies! I'm going to give it a try. I love flowers in containers to Lisa. That's all I've ever planted before.

    I have done tomatoes and the bush cucumbers in containers. I want to try and do a bit more this year, maybe green peppers.
