Answer: Most any plant will adapt to growing in a container, if there's ample room for root growth. How about some green onions or chives? They will grow in a pot that's 6 inches deep. You can grow 'Orbit' carrots in 6 inches of soil, as well. If you provide a trellis, you can grow cucumbers and harvest them when they 4-5 inches long. The cukes will need about 12-18 inches of soil for their roots. How about adding one big container and making it an herb garden? The size is up to you - a five-gallon pot will hold dill, marjoram, oregano, parsley, basil and nasturtiums (bright flowers with a pleasant peppery taste to add interest to your salads). Enjoy your patio garden!
