The interest in planting home gardens to grow fresh produce is increasing at a rapid pace. However, gardeners with limited growing space may find vegetable production to be challenging. Growing vegetables in containers is becoming a popular method for dealing with this problem, but the containers present their own unique challenges, especially in regard to watering.

Subirrigated containers offer a successful gardening alternative for gardeners with limited space—small yards, porches, or even balconies. While this publication primarily addresses vegetable gardening, subirrigated containers also do a good job at growing flowering ornamentals.
