Hello,

 

I am a newbie to gardening and have been going through posts about using containers. I need suggestions/guidelines on the following:

 

1. I have a big baby bathtub which is no longer in use. Can I grow some 3 tomato plants, 3 ladies finger, 3 beans in it?

2. Can we use those thick plastic bags we get from shopping malls? What are the pros and cons to this?

3. There are several water bottles, 1 Lr and smaller, at home. Can any vegetable plant, which doesn't need to be transplanted later, be grown in these? If veggies are not possible, then please suggest some flower plants (again without the need to transplant later).

4. Can coriander be grown in 1 Lr water bottle? or would it need a broad base? 

 

I have so many doubts. Will come back later with more!

Thanks raja gopal. We finally sowed some carrots in the bath tub as it had good depth. Will try the coriander in a small container and see...happy new year to you too.
