What worked well?
Beetroot grew well. They didn't get very big but that suited me for bottling. Carrots grew well too but I had to work hard to thin them out so they had enough room to get to a decent size. Broccoli and cauliflower appear to do well in pots except they were decimated by bugs and caterpillars. And I can only get about one plant to a pot which makes it extravagant pot use. I also had a very respectable crop of cucumber which I grew in pots in my porch. As for herbs, I have done well with both rosemary and mint in pots.
What didn't work well?
I must be the only person in the world who cannot grow pumpkin. I had one plant in a huge pot but it still came to nothing. I only managed to get one zucchini from three plants and my lettuce were useless...they were very small and curled in on themselves.
What I am going to try next year
I have just planted some onion seeds so it will be really interesting to see how they do. And I am just trying to think what to put in my big bath...any suggestions?
Have you tried to grow veggies in pots? How did you get on? What veggies did you find do the best in pots?
