Vegetable Gardening In Containers
Sam Cotner, Extension Horticulturist
If your vegetable gardening is limited by insufficient space or an unsuitable area, consider the possibility of raising fresh, nutritious, homegrown vegetables in containers. A window sill, a patio, a balcony or a doorstep will provide sufficient space for a productive mini-garden. Problems with soil-borne diseases, nematodes or poor soil conditions can be easily overcome by switching to a container garden.
Crop Selection Almost any vegetable that will grow in a typical backyard garden will also do well as a container-grown plant. Vegetables which are ideally suited for growing in containers include tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, green onions, beans, lettuce, squash, radishes and parsley. Pole beans and cucumbers also do well in this type of garden, but they do require considerably more space because of their vining growth habit. Variety selection is of extreme importance. Most varieties that will do well when planted in a yard garden will also do well in containers. Some varieties of selected vegetables which are ideally suited for these mini-gardens are indicated in Table 1.

You can’t bear to toss your beloved old blue porcelain bowl set. And maybe that Michelin tire might come in handy again, so you should keep it. Although you might not use recycled porcelain bowls or apple barrels but rather terra cotta or woven pots, the simple concept of growing plants in pots or urns in addition to other objects, offers you a variety of enjoyable and creative ways to maintain and experiment with your garden.
The concept of container gardening existed before Boccaccio’s Isabella planted her lover’s noggin in a pot of basil: the Egyptians and Romans likely developed the idea.
Of late, container gardening’s popularity grew in southern California in the 1950s, and since then interest has escalated steadily. This brief guide is designed to facilitate decisions in planning and growing your garden in containers, since you will need to select the right containers and their ideal locations and plants.

Introduction If you don't have space for a vegetable garden or if your outdoor space doesn't provide the necessary elements to produce the flower garden you've always wanted, consider the possibility of "container gardening." A patio, deck, balcony, or doorstep can provide enough space for a productive, attractive display. If you live in an apartment with limited outdoor space, you might consider doing a little indoor gardening. By using sunny window sills, you can grow a number of herbs.
Many individuals find container gardening to be advantageous. Each person is unique and has his or her own particular circumstances. They may be:
  • disabled with a need for easy accessibility gardeners with problem soil homeowners with little or no land elderly with limited mobility apartment/condominium dwellers cooks gourmet and otherwise plant lovers who just can t get enough of nature
Convenience While space (or lack of it) is an obvious reason to try container gardening, that is not the only reason people choose this method. Often, convenience plays a big part, especially for vegetables and herbs. Having these essentially at your fingertips is a tremendous advantage. The mobility of container gardening makes it easy to rearrange and resculpture your garden and to add new elements of interest and beauty.

Container Gardening
Gardening in containers offers flexibility for people with limited garden space or a lack of time for gardening. Containers provide splashes of color throughout the yard and can be planted with mixtures of flowers, herbs and vegetables. A large variety of containers are available. Plant in tubs, crocks, pots, barrels, sacks, baskets, bowls, wooden boxes or peat moss containersanything with good drainage. The containers need drainage holes. Success starts with a good soil mix. The mix should be light and airy. It should retain moisture and nutrients and be quick to drain. To reduce root rot problems, use the same mix throughout the pot. Commercial mixes that University of Minnesota Master Gardeners have found successful include Redi-Earth, Jiffy Mix, Metro Mix, Super Soil, and Pro-Mix. Another option is to make your own mix. Use one part potting soil, one part compost and one part sharp sand or vermiculite. Another mix is equal parts of peat moss, perlite and vermiculite. Plants in containers need frequent watering. They may require several waterings a day during very hot weather. Monitor your plants closely. Clay or terra cotta containers dry out faster than plastic containers. For continuous bloom, deadhead spent blossoms and fertilize with a complete fertilizer. Always follow directions on the label.

Container Gardening
Since earliest times, people have needed and enjoyed plants. Where the climate was unfavorable, or the soil or water was scarce, containers made it possible to satisfy that desire. Container gardening is ideal when space is limited. It is a technique which permits plant materials to be moved around easily, to be changed or renewed as desired and to be enjoyed at close range. Plantings can be as simple or as elaborate as space, inclination, taste and funds permit. By its exposure, the container garden site will dictate grow successfully and how to arrange the plants. Since strong winds and sun may present problems, here are some suggestions on how to correct the situation:
  • Construct baffles or screens of opaque plastic or fiberglass to reduce light intensity.
  • Construct a screen, either of louvers or lattice, or a trellis on which to grow appropriate vines to reduce light and wind.
Container Selection Having decided where to place the plants, consider the selection of containers. Many kinds are availableordinary clay pots, wooden boxes, barrels, tubs, and metal and plastic. All should have drainage holes in the bottom. Old kettles, jugs and crocks make interesting containers, and boxes built in various sizes can be stacked in intriguing combinations. It is a good idea to treat wooden objects with a preservative such as copper naphthenate.

Seed Shop Book Shop Article Index Forums ... Herb Guide Eight Rules for Creative Container Gardens by John Richmond Once you have the structure of a garden - the paths, beds, borders, hard surfacing, trees and shrubs - then you need the furnishings. Decorative containers offer interesting ways to grow a wide variety of plants. In a container you can control the soil, vary the watering regime, adjust the amount of sun or shade, group plants for impact - and ungroup them if the idea doesn't work. With decorative containers you can make a sculptural statement in the garden. With plain containers you can build banks of colour and foliage that hide the outlines of the pots - or any other area you want hidden. Some gardens wouldn't even be possible without containers. People have the urge to garden no matter how unpromising the site. I regularly walk past plots of land where there is little soil or space. A set of steps going down to a town basement? Put pots along the side of the steps. A balcony? Use pots brimming with plants to hide the edge. A concrete or paved courtyard? Disguise the walls with pot grown shrubs and climbers. A thin strip of road frontage? Colourful annuals in pots will make the approach more interesting. The possibilities are endless as long as some basic rules are followed.

June Garden Calendar

There is a lot of work to be done in the June garden. Keep on schedule with this calendar. SPRING LAWN CARE
Your lawn has just survived another long winter. In order to restore it to its former lush, green glory, it will need to be raked, renovated, repaired, and fertilized. Here are some tips for keeping your lawn beautiful and healthy. Save your garden's bounty
One way to enjoy the coming winter is to preserve the summer's bounty of vegetables. Here are some simple guidelines, from for freezing a variety of vegetables commonly grown in home gardens. Growing Rhubarb
Rhubarb is a cool season, perennial plant that is very winter hardy and resistant to drought. Its crop is produced from crowns consisting of fleshy rhizomes and buds. Following a season of growth the rhubarb crown becomes dormant and temperatures below 40 F are required to stimulate bud break and subsequent growth. The first shoots to appear in the spring are edible petioles and leaves. These emerge sequentially as long as temperatures remain cool (below 90 F). As temperatures increase, top growth is suppressed, even appearing dormant in periods of extreme heat. With declining temperatures in later summer, foliage growth resumes. Caring for Your Annuals You have those annuals in the ground; now what? See how to give them the best start and keep them going through their entire growth cycle.

17. Tips For Great Looking Container Gardens
Recipes for successful container gardening with info on soils, containers, fertilizing, watering and grooming.
In a world of limited time and space, container gardening seems to be more and more appropriate. The popularity of container gardening has taken on a life of its own and has almost become an art form. Common plant material can take on an entirely new look when displayed in containers where the plant's unique color, texture or form can be spotlighted. "Instant color" can be introduced by placing containers around the garden. It can change the entire look of a landscape. Unplantable areas and space where there really is no place to garden in the ground, suddenly becomes a colorful oasis. Successful container gardeners know that good looking containers just don't happen. When a few basic principles are applied, even the novice gardener can create and maintain attention-grabbing containers.
