Decorating Your Vegetable GardenDecorating Your Vegetable Garden

The idea of creating a container vegetable garden is one that will appeal to anyone who has limited space in their yard, or does not want to hassle with traditional gardening. But a container vegetable garden does not only belong in small spaces. A container vegetable garden can be a decorative addition to any patio or backyard.





How to Create a Container Vegetable Garden

Many vegetables and herbs thrive in planters and other gardening containers such as hanging baskets, flower boxes, floor planters, and basket stands, so creating a container vegetable garden can be very rewarding. And it doesn’t take much effort. A container vegetable garden is also a great way to spend less at the grocery store.


You can plant individual species in each planter or mix several herbs and vegetables together to create a container vegetable garden creating a stunning visual display of color. Just be sure to choose a container that is large enough to accommodate the mass of roots that will fill the container when the plants are fully mature.

Tomatoes, in particular the mini varieties, do particular well in a container vegetable garden. Chilies and peppers, and even decorative lettuce and cabbage plants will add a decorative character to a container vegetable garden.


Planters and containers lined with biodegradable coco fiber make an excellent home for a container vegetable garden because of its ability to absorb water efficiently.


So, be green and economical by trying your hand at growing a container vegetable garden.
