The Q&A Archives: Raised Gardens

Question: I'm planning to build a waist-high raised garden for my vegetables. I will use plastic containers to do the actual planting. What are the minum depths for different vegetables?

Answer: Most vegetables adapt well to containers. The size of the pot depends on the mature size of the vegetable. For tomatoes, you'll probably want a large container - 12 to 18 inches deep. For smaller plants, like lettuce or radishes, 6 to 8 inches deep will work. Hope you have a bountiful harvest!
