i havent got a veg patch yet so i would like to grow as
much as i can in pots can you tell me which vegatables
would do well in containers



I have grown lettuce, spinach, kale,swiss chard, broccoli,eggplant(aubergine),tomatoes, peppers, beans, carrots, onions, melons, strawberries, and tomatillos along with lots of different herbs and flowers, all in pots or shallow wooden boxes. So I guess your answer is almost anything will do okay as long as the container is big enough!

Depth of container is the most importantthing for growing veggies - especially anything where you are gonig to eat the root - like carrots. But have a go and see what happens!

to add to Wohlibuli's list i have grown cabbages, beetroot, mangetoute, runner/dwarf french/broad beans. i use the 3-5 litr tomato pots and use garden soil mixed with garden compost depending on what i am growing.

You can buy great plastic bags with holes at the bottom, for potatoes. I've done this, altho' I've now planted some courgettes in one!
