The Q&A Archives: Potted Plants

Question: I want to grow vegetables in pots. My tomato plants do good in pots. I want to know about growing strawberries, crook neck squash, zucchines & sweet banana bell peppers? What about lettuce? Any other plants that can grow & produce its' fruit in pots?
Thank you for your' help & may God bless you.

Answer: Nearly any vegetable, annual and perennial, along with some dwarf shrubs (such as blueberries) will adapt to growing in containers. The only considerations might be the size of the containers. I'd go with something slightly larger than you think you will need. As for squash, you'll need a trellis or some ground space for the vines to sprawl. Aside from these considerations, you should be able to successfully grow just about anything in a container. Enjoy!
