Many fruits and vegetables can be successfully grown in our garden planters. Choose compact or dwarf varieties that are well-suited for container gardening. Some popular choices include tomatoes, peppers, herbs like basil and parsley, strawberries, dwarf varieties of apples or pears, and even miniature varieties of carrots or radishes.
Most fruits and vegetables require a minimum of 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and productivity. Place your planters in a location that receives adequate sunlight, such as a south-facing spot in your garden, patio, or balcony. If your space is limited, consider using our planters with built-in wheels or casters, allowing you to move them to sunnier areas as needed.
How to grow Fruit and Veg in Garden Planters
Use a well-draining compost mix specifically formulated for containers. Avoid using garden soil, as it may become compacted and hinder plant growth. Fill the planters with the potting mix, leaving a few inches of space below the rim. Follow the planting instructions for each fruit or vegetable, ensuring proper spacing and depth. Consider companion planting to maximize space and create mutually beneficial plant combinations.
Regular watering is essential for the success of plants in garden planters. Monitor the moisture level of the soil and water thoroughly when the top inch feels dry. Be mindful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Use a water-soluble organic fertiliser or slow-release granules to provide necessary nutrients to your plants. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package for proper dosage and application.
Regularly inspect your plants for signs of pests or diseases. Handpick or treat any pests promptly to prevent infestations. Pinch off dead or yellowing leaves to maintain plant health and appearance. Prune or trim plants as needed to manage their size and shape. Consider using trellises, stakes, or cages to provide support for climbing or vining plants like tomatoes or peas.
To prevent nutrient depletion and disease buildup, rotate the crops in your planters each growing season. Empty the planters, refresh the soil with compost or new potting mix, and replant with different fruits or vegetables. This practice helps maintain soil fertility and reduces the risk of plant-specific pests and diseases.
