Tips for Container Gardening – Don’t let the lack of space keep you from Gardening.  Even if you don’t have a yard, you can grow a small container garden for fresh vegetables.

Here are some tips for container gardening:

  • Carrots should  be planted in the spring/fall and need partial shade.
  • Cucumbers should be planted when it is warm and need full sun.
  • Green Onions should be planted in the early sprint/September and need full sun.
  • Lettuce should be planted in the early sprint/fall and need partial shade.
  • Peppers should be planted when it is warm and need full sun.
  • Radishes should be planted in the early spring/fall and need full sun to light shade.
  • Summer Squash should be planted when it is warm and need full sun. You can plant 1 per 5 gallon container.
  • Tomatoes are full season and need full sun at least 6 hours per day.  You can plant 1 per 4 to 5 gallon container.

If you don’t have space or a yard to plant a garden this may be a great alternative for you.  Have you tried container gardening?  I would love to hear about it!

We are looking forward to planting our garden and sharing the process with you!
