    I love that you have pictures with your growing recommendations. I’m looking forward to growing many if not all of these in pots this next year. Thank you for sharing.

    We have a terrible time in Brisbane growing tomatoes –how do we beat the fruit flies?

      I do this when I have fruit flies in my house and it works! Take a small glass glass, fill it about half full with apple cider vinegar and add 2 – 3 drops of liquid dish washing detergent. Then just leave on the counter around the area where the fruit flies are. You will be surprised at how many will be dead in the bottom of that glass when you check it later on! Change the vinegar every couple of weeks until there is no more activity. Good luck!

    Hi there, fantastic list, really comprehensive! I’ve got my own infographic done up on this, specifically for the Australian climate. Ive included a few here you might not have thought of! Check it out: http://bit.ly/1lEOvtA

    What is the approximate diameter of the pots you use?

    I would probably agree with most of these for my climate (Australia) – but not all of them! I haven’t had any success with either eggplants or cucumbers in pots, but have had great success with things like Leeks, Capsicum and Chillies! Ive got a great info graphic of my top 10 veggies to grow in pots on my blog if you’re interested! http://bit.ly/1rn7Qkt

      I have horrible luck with eggplant in the garden but last year I grew more Japanese eggplant (the longer thin ones – one plant per 18″ back plastic pot) than I knew what to do with. Just a word of advice: build a strong staking structure before they get going or you’ll never be able to hold them up. I ended up having to put the pots on the lawn and stake around the outside of the pot because my cage in the pot wasn’t adequate.

    My green or red bell peppers, squash and cucumbers never did well in containers, and I have tried 2 yrs in a row. Tomatoes have done well, as well as hot peppers, sage, basil and mint.

    Great post! Definitely a very helpful information and nice ideas. My sister wants to turn her balcony into a small garden by adding few containers of veggies and herbs, and here are lovely suggestions. I’m surely recommending you post to her. Thanks for sharing!

    Beautifully presented! Your pictures are inspiring. Container gardens mean that anyone and everyone can grow at least a few vegetables!!

    I’ve searched a number of blogs, tomato is the number 1 list for homegrown pot vegies. I also love planting pechay because it grows fast and easy to plant. Just in 2 weeks you can make a sweet soup out of it.

    I absolutely love that growing in containers idea. Finished planting it yesterday at my garden and now Im fascinated how this idea enriches my green space. I like to add plants to any possible corner at my place but unfortunately have quite a small place. So this idea is just what I`ve been looking for.

    I am going to try to make a garden with my granddaughter. I don’t know what I can plant in the same planter we are going to make or how far away each should be from each other?
