Enjoy a Vegetable Container Garden
The more eggplant you pick, the more eggplant you'll get. 'Little Fingers' eggplant can be harvested when it reaches 3 inches long and maintains its mild flavor until it grows to 8 inches. Frothy Verbena bonariensis and low-growing Ageratum contribute to the purple theme, while snowy white Bacopa trails over one edge of the container. Sage, a fragrant and edible herb, grows at the base of the eggplant.
Tip: Most vegetables require at least six hours of direct sunlight a day for fruit production. If your only garden space is a shaded balcony or courtyard, forgo the peppers and tomatoes and opt for a delectable salad garden.
