Enjoy a Vegetable Container Garden
Squeeze a vegetable garden into a sunny corner of a deck. This bountiful pot is home to a banana pepper, 'Juliet' grape tomato, basil and thyme. Ornamental peppers in red, orange and yellow add additional pops of color. The tomato plant cascades over the bright orange pot, allowing more space for companions to grow.
Tip: Don't forget to feed your plants. Begin the season by incorporating slow-release fertilizer into the soil. While plants are actively growing, apply a balanced fertilizer (such as 12-12-12) at half-strength once a week when watering.
