Growing up with a little garden, producing plants in pots was my first taste of growing my own food. From the chives in the big garden pots to the little pots of mint and coriander sitting on the kitchen windowsill, these experiences were the first to pique my interest in gardening.
Chives do very well in containers, as can cucumbers, as long as they are planted in an appropriately sized, heavyweight container, and harvested promptly.
Tomatoes, strawberries and salad cress, along with herbs of all varieties, can easily be grown, and will thrive, in small containers, and so are ideal for windowsill planting – if you can offer your tomato plants a slightly larger balcony pot, with the opportunity to climb a wall, they’ll appreciate it, but the smaller varieties, such as moneymaker, can be grown indoors.
Salad cress grows very well in containers, as many a school yoghurt pot project can attest, and tomatoes are a regular feature in container gardens, along with strawberries (technically these are both fruits, not vegetables, but they do very well in containers!).
