Hi Mrs M, I have been growing veggies in large containers for a few years now in homemade compost boosted up with fertiliser and done well(expect this year.) They include corgettes, spinach,cabbage, rubarb, beans,tomatoes, chilli, early potatoes,gooseberries etc. I make sure that they are well watered. With bought compost varying in quality and being pricey I didn't thing it would be worthwhile. So do have a go, it will work out slightly cheaper, you'll crop fresh produce and really taste the difference.
