Container Vegetable Gardening Part 5

January 06, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 107

Container vegetable gardening needs a good amount of hard work and patience. Not only beginners, even experts will face challenges at times. So, you need to do it carefully to derive the best results. But, when you look at the healthy and lovely plants you have grown, it gives immense satisfaction and happiness.

Perhaps, the concept of container vegetable gardening was inspired due to the space constraint people started facing. It has grown into a great hobby and millions of people are pursuing it.

The most important point in this type of gardening is that you should understand that conditions required by every plant are different. Conditions like the soil, drainage, size of the container, sunlight, etc. differ from one plant to another. So, if you adopt the same approach to all the plants, you will fail miserably in your container vegetable garden. Another benefit in this type of gardening, apart from doing it in the comfort of your home, is that you will not have trouble keeping weeds away. Further, unfavorable weather conditions will not deter you from carrying out your gardening work.

You should also make it a point to devote some of your time towards gardening work. If you do not attend to the plants consistently, you may not even know if they are affected by diseases. You may also not know when to put fertilizers or when to water them, etc. After beginning the work with all enthusiasm, you should continue to have the same degree of excitement and enthusiasm for succeeding in your efforts.

You must choose a particular space in your house for doing your container vegetable gardening. The next step is to buy the appropriate containers because according to the nature of plants, the sizes of the containers should also vary. You should position the containers in the allotted space in such a manner that those that require more sunlight must get sufficient dose of it and those that require moderate sunlight should be placed a little away from the rays of the sun. In other words, you should ensure to create the appropriate and suitable environment for the plants to have healthy growth.

The plants that can easily be grown in this garden are tomatoes, pepper, eggplant, squash, leaf lettuce, green onions, green beans, radishes, parsley and some specific herbs. You can also grow cucumbers but they require additional help to support the growth of vines.

If you follow the tips given by experts and experienced people, you can definitely succeed in your container vegetable gardening endeavor.
