Together with the Veggie Planter Trellis, this medium-sized planter is perfect for growing cucumbers, green beans, peas, peppers, and tomatoes. All those veggies and fruit (yes, tomato is a fruit) do exceptionally well in containers because container soil is generally fluffy and not as compacted as in-ground soil, but there are more reasons for it.

Cucumbers:
Do you have a sunny spot to place the flower box? If so, it is ideal for getting plenty of cucumbers – they love full sun. Select a variety of cucumbers meant for pickling because you will get a large yield of small cucumbers.
Cucumbers are heavy feeders, so you need to make sure you provide regular watering, preferably in the morning. Use twine to tie the cucumber plants to the trellis.

Green Beans:
Green beans come in two sun-loving types: bush and pole. Both varieties grow well in containers, and the trellis will come in handy. Beans add nitrogen into the soil, so cultivate some celery or kale with them in the box.

Peas:
Peas might be the right choice if you don’t get that much sun to the flower box as they also need a trellis. Fresh peas off the vine beat canned peas any day.
Peas prefer colder seasons and constant, slightly moist soil.

Peppers:
Peppers are excellent choices for containers, especially if you can ensure the plant receives enough sunlight. Peppers need a lot of the sun to thrive. You don’t want to drown your peppers in water; most do well receive less water than your other plants!
Peppers do best if you fertilise the plant several times during the growing season. Our Organic Fruit and Veggie Fertiliser help the fruit to set.

Growing peppers in containers allow you to control their final taste. Sweet and hot peppers develop their flavour based on the amount of sun exposure received. Peppers are sweeter if they receive more sun. Hot peppers are spicier when they receive more sun.

Tomatoes:
Tomatoes are one of the most productive veggie plants you can grow in a container at home. Make sure that your tomatoes receive ample sunlight, at least five to six hours per day. Growing determinate varieties of tomatoes tend to be the best choice because the plants aren’t as large. Cherry tomatoes also produce high yields in containers.
