No Backyard? No Problem. 10 Of The Easiest Vegetables You Can Grow In Containers

No Backyard? No Problem. 10 Of The Easiest Vegetables You Can Grow In Containers

Grow your own food without an allotment! You can harvest significant crops by growing vegetables in containers and pots . It’s the perfect choice for balcony and patio-gardens, small gardens with limited space or rented homes where you can’t dig over the garden beds.
Here are my top 10 vegetable varieties You Can try in containers. You’ll be amazed how much food you can harvest from such a small space!
1.Beets.
These are great container crops. To avoid a glut, sow a few seeds every couple of weeks and you’ll be harvesting them all through summer.
Soak the seeds in warm water for a few hours before sowing to speed-up germination.
2.Potatoes.
Many people think potato plants need lots of room to grow, but what they actually need is deep-soil. They will grow in long containers like barrels or plastic dustbins.

3.Carrots.
Like potatoes, carrots need deep soil to grow well, but there are short-rooted varieties that do well in containers.
Sow thinly (2-3cm apart) and water during dry periods. Be careful not to bruise or crush the foliage as the smell may attract the root-ruining pest, carrot fly.
4.Eggplant.
Any pot which has the capacity to hold up to 5 inches’ depth can be used for growing eggplant. However, without stake you would not be able to hold the plant in the pot, so be careful.
 

5.Radishes.
Crispy, peppery radishes are great in salads and a good crop for beginner veg gardeners. They are trouble-free and ready to harvest in as little as a month.
Sow little and often for a continuous supply and water well.
6.Swiss chard.
Chard is a stunning leafy green that is related to spinach and beetroot. It’s becoming more popular in the kitchen and its colorful stems make it a really attractive crop too – it even comes in rainbow varieties!

7.Green Onions.
Spring or salad onions are a great crop for containers because they don’t need deep soil. They are also extremely easy to grow.

8.Spinach.
Spinach is a great cut and come again crop for containers, and full of leafy green goodness. Fill a container with rich compost and put the spinach seedlings in a spot with light shade – too much hot sunlight will lead to bolting.
Water copiously in dry weather to prevent the spinach leaves from tasting bitter

9.Lettuce.
Grow your own fresh salads with lettuce plants. Sow one or two at intervals so they don’t all mature at the same time.
You need rich soil that is kept really moist for lettuces to grow well. Water in the morning rather than the evening, and cut the head when the firm heart has formed.

And 10. Herbs.
Kitchen herbs are the easiest edible plants to grow and deserve a spot on any container gardening list. Try thyme, chives, mint, sage, parsley, oregano and rosemary outdoors, and basil and coriander on the kitchen-windowsill.

What sort of veggies and herbs do you find easy to grow in containers?

    Why are you stealing content from other channels and just adding a voice over?

  2. Christian Lüts on July 21, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    The "Natural Way" is obviously to steal other people’s youTube content rather than make your own.

    Should be ashamed of yourselves for stealing screenshots from other you tubers videos to make money for yourselves without crediting the hard work of others

  9. Special on July 21, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Why do you put "Images licensed under Creative Commons:" above in your video comments. Does that make you feel better for stealing peoples copyrighted material from their videos. You need to be banned from you tube. Thief in my book.

    I would just like to give HGV, a gardener I highly admire and subscribe to, the credit for some of the screenshots in this video. From 1 min, these are his carrots, even beautiful Molly in the background. Please take a wee look at his gardening tips, he is amazing. Stay safe 💖

    0:31 that is peas not beet seeds.

  14. Tassie Girl on July 21, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    To all watchers of this channel, this maker is stealing other YouTube gardening channel creators work. To this channel so called creator You have stolen material from other you tube video makers, Absolutely disgusting, you did not ask their permission for example from HGV (Home Grown Veg) , did not acknowledge the original creator anywhere, yet included many of his screen shots in this video even one with his beloved border collie who died last year, another with his pot of carrots and his hands. You should have your channel removed by youtube. Then if you want to post videos on gardening start creating your own work and stop STEALING others

  15. Carmen Ortiz on July 21, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Wow! Molly must still be alive. Warning: videos crooks here. "Natural ways" of stealing others work! You people should be ashamed.

  16. Di A on July 21, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    You’ve stolen pictures from home grown veg channel. Shame on you

  17. Dana on July 21, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Saw enough I first minute to know you’ve taken other peoples material. You should actually try gardening for yourself then start a video of that! Wow.

  18. Diane Ladico on July 21, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    You THIEF! Shamelessly stealing others’ content-are you that unskilled and unoriginal that you can’t grow your own garden? You’re stealing from a kind gentleman who DOES ALL HIS OWN WORK and generously shares it with the world. You should be banned.

    This is THEFT. How many other small vid producers have you stolen from? Create your own content or get offline. This is unconscionable.

    You have seriously misunderstood the concept of "Fair use". Shame on you for stealing material from smaller channels like Home Grown Veg. The least you can do now is to pay him whatever you earned from this video and make a new video with an apology and a shout out to his channel.

    Disgusting THEFT of other people’s garden videos! This is NOT your work. It is the work of Home Grown Veg and other garden channels. People like you making money from other people’s work should banned from YouTube.

  42. Kenny Red on July 21, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Plagiarism……it’s really terrible that you take your screenshots from other honest gardener’s videos here on YouTube. Although it may not be illegal, it shows that taking other’s creativity and using it as your own is not right.

  43. ratmmjg on July 21, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    You stole this carrot shot from another channel. That’s not your dog you pig!

  44. jeri gallacher on July 21, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    You are a terrible person. You should be ashamed of yourself. Using screenshots of REAL gardeners from their channel. All you’re doing is stealing and editing others hard work. Why don’t you grow YOUR own food and film it like HOME GROWN VEG. People you should check this channel HOME GROWN VEG. He actually teaches you, as he is doing it. He’s not stealing someone else’s hard work and raking in money off you watching a bunch of screen grabs from HOME GROWN VEG. Come visit a REAL channel that will actually teach you something. That’s it. I’m done.

  48. Michele LaMas on July 21, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    You really need to get permission before using someone else’s content in your videos or actually do the gardening you talk about for yourself and actually video it. Using other people’s content to make money on your channel is dishonest and you should be ashamed of yourself especially with the amount of viewers you have. If your viewers want to see a REAL gardener doing the actual gardening they should visit one of the sites you stole from like Home Grown Veg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgcV_lhEEg8

    Is it a "Natural Way" to STEAL other people’s content? Shame on you.
