Container gardening is one of the most popular trends in gardening. The key to successful container gardening is to start with fruit and vegetable varieties that are well-suited for containers. Often these are varieties that have a shorter or compact growth habit. Farmer Seed and Nursery offers a variety of fruit trees, including figs and banana trees, as well as blueberry bushes, tomato plants, cucumber vines, pepper plants and other fruiting plants that are suitable for container gardening. When selecting what fruiting container plants to buy online, consider their light requirements, soil needs, height, fruiting or harvest time and hardiness zone. When planting fruit and vegetable plants in pots, use quality potting soil and make sure your container has good drainage.
