Top Crops for Pots
Make the most of your container gardens and grow vegetables at home. These tips will help you choose the best plants for your climate and containers.
Pot depth: 14 to 16 inches
Soil temperature (at planting time): At least 60ºF
Spacing: Direct-sow seeds 2–3 inches apart.
Pole beans are more productive over the long run than bush beans (which produce their crop all at once). Train the 6- to 8-foot-tall vines on a trellis or tepee made from bamboo poles. Try 'Blue Lake Pole', 'Helda' romano, or heirloom 'Kentucky Wonder'.
