Making Herb and Vegetable Containers


Plant vegetable or herb seeds or transplants in containers at the same time and in the same way you plant vegetables and herbs in your garden. Use the right potting mix, and plant seeds or transplants according to the instructions on seed packets. If larger containers are used, use roller platforms to facilitate movement of the containers from one location to another in your backyard.
