FOR SOME gardeners, growing vegetables in containers is a necessity. City-dwellers make use of rooftops, balconies, alleyways, sidewalks or whatever little space they have available. Gardeners with physical disabilities find that growing vegetables in containers makes them far easier to reach and tend. Gardeners with difficult soil conditions (sand, stone, clay, permafrost) can’t really grow vegetables any other way. And others find it’s a way to avoid sharing their harvest with deer or woodchucks.
