Containers – The Best Ones for Growing Vegetables
Almost any type of container can be used for growing vegetable plants. However, we think that the most durable, those requiring little maintenance and good looking planters are the best. The size of the planter will vary according to the crop selection and space available. Pots from 6 to 10 inches in size are most satisfactory for green onion, parsley and herbs. For those larger vegetable crops such as tomatoes, peppers and eggplants, you will probably find 5 gallon pots and containers the best. They are easy to handle and provide adequate space for root growth. Make sure you have drainage holes on the bottom of course.
