Learn to grow a wide variety of vegetables and herbs in containers on your steps, your back porch, or any sunny spot around your home. This program will include information on how to choose the right container for the right crop, start seeds, and provide the best light and soil conditions for your growing plants. The basics of container gardening can be applied at any scale, making this the perfect gardening technique for beginners and those with limited outdoor space.
