Suggested Varieties for Organic Vegetable Container Gardening


Organic vegetables best suited for container gardening are those with a compact growth habit. Dwarf, determinate or bush varieties of larger vegetable plants such as peas, peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, and cucumbers can be grown successfully in containers, but generally require either support, such as stakes or trellises, or appropriately-sized containers, or both. Special varieties of beets, carrots, and bush beans do better than others based on their ability to size up quickly, have a sweet flavor at a smaller size, or produce well under stress such as heat or shade.

We have selected varieties that will generally do well in containers, but feel free to use these as just a place to start.  With creative container sizes and shapes, vertical growing using trellises or alternative solutions to tight spaces, you may be able to grow just about anything that you would like to grow! For more information on Container Gardening, please see our blog post on Container Gardening.

If you are looking for any easy place to start, consider trying our Container Gardening Collection!
