How to grow an edible container garden

Provide fresh food for yourself and your family even during the cooler months with an edible container garden…

It’s getting a bit late for planting in most areas of the country, but if you can’t stand the thought of going through the winter without fresh, homegrown food, an edible container garden may be a good option!

Some crops will grow quite well in containers, and when it gets cold, you may be able to move them indoors or inside a screened in porch to give them some protection and extend their productivity.

You can grow many different types of vegetables, fruits, and herbs in pots, but some do better than others. This quick video shares 5 delicious, easy-to-grow crops that are well-suited for container growing. (Keep in mind that leafy green crops such as herbs and salad greens will be best for the cooler months when there is less sunlight.)

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
