Enjoy a Vegetable Container Garden
Onions and chives add pretty spikes to vegetable plantings. In the green container at back, tall chives (Allium schoenoprasum) grow with 'Gypsy' sweet pepper and French thyme (Thymus vulgaris). The basket in the front includes 'Salad Bush' cucumber and yellow onion. The middle container offers more salad fixings: 'Bush Goliath' tomato, 'Summerlong' basil and Italian (flat-leaf) parsley (Petroselinum crispum).
Tip: Select a potting soil made with compost instead of a nonrenewable resource such as peat.
