Enjoy a Vegetable Container Garden
Pick a pepper
This trio of sweet bells -- 'Purple Beauty', 'Red Beauty' and 'Bell Boy' -- offer purple, red and green fruit respectively. These season-long producers set fruit until the first frost. A lush herb carpet grows under the peppers. English thyme creeps over the edge of the pot, and parsley and peppermint mask the peppers' lanky stems. Angelonia 'Cascade Deep Purple' complements the cool blue hue of the container.
Tip: Containers made of nonporous material such as resin reduce watering by preventing soil moisture loss. Jazz them up with colorful paint, as we did with this one.
