Growing vegetables in pots (or other containers) is a perfect solution for those whose garden is lack of room. If you live in an apartment but still love planting vegetables, herbs, and flowers, this also helps. It not only brings you clean vegetables for daily cooking but also makes your house “greener” and more stylish. No one could resist living in an environment-friendly space.
And, here are 17 best veggies to grow in pots I would like to share to you guys. You can start your DIY project with seeds, seedling, cuttings, or even scraps.

Hope you also prefer it!
