The Best Vegetables to Grow in a Pot:
One of the easiest veggies to grow, lettuce seeds will grow almost anywhere, so just sprinkle them in a pot and give them some water. Additionally, you can seed a bunch of different species in the same pot.
Important: Lettuce needs a lot of sunlight, so take this into consideration when choosing where to place the pot.
Like lettuce, spinach is easy to grow in a pot. Just toss the seeds in the pot and give them some water. The best part is you can just trim the plant and it’ll grow more.
Important: Spinach needs good amounts of sunlight, as well as decent drainage.
Green beans are some of the easiest vegetables to grow, so you can make it a project for your kids. If you pick the beans regularly, they'll keep on reproducing, creating a virtually endless supply of yumminess.
Important: Pay attention to the type of bean you get. If you use bush beans, they’ll require a trellis of only one or two feet, but if you choose pole beans, you’ll need a five-foot pole for them to grow on.
Tomatoes do well in pots. If you want fast results, plant either grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes. They are climbers, so put in a trellis.
Important: It’s harder to seed a tomato in a pot, so you may want to buy seedlings rather than seeds.
Cucumbers are fast growers, and a fresh cucumber makes for a delicious addition to salads. It's also great for adding mild flavoring to water.
Important: Cucumbers are climbers, so use a sturdy trellis in the pot. If you want to keep it smaller, go with the bush cucumber species instead.
Radishes are fast growers, and can take as little as 25 days to be ready for consumption. After the seeds start sprouting, thin them out so they don’t compete with each other.
Important: Radishes do not like heat, so if you live in a hot area, look for species that are more heat-resilient.
Pepper species that are suitable for pot-growing are bell peppers and chili peppers. They require certain conditions to start growing, so you’re better off starting with seedlings.
If you decide to grow regular peppers, it can take up to three months for them to mature. If you’re impatient, then go for mini red bell peppers – they only take two months.
