Fruit and veg growing

Would 30cm pots be ok for the herbs then?

I have seen these on amazon, i have a nice sunny wall i can hang them onto.

Or these 24cm ones here which don't need screwing and just tie to drain pipe.

I may get some dwarf beans then, and see if these grow better.

Im not too sure about courgettes, my husband loves them though. What size container do they need for a plant?

Ok, so i have started planning what i'm going to do:

Im going to put 3 runner beans into the one grow bag (16.5" x 14")

one tomato plant per a grow bag (16.5" x 14") im growing the 'money maker' i will have two in total.

My carrots are currently growing in a trough which measures 16" long but only 6" deep - im guessing these are tiny carrots or that they need to be moved into a deeper container? Advice on this please

I have 10 pepper seedlings growing in another trough which also measures 16" long but only 6" deep, i have read a 30 cm pot is adequate for one plant, so will one plant be ok to stay in this trough? and to plant a second one in another pot. I am only planning on keeping around 2 of each plant. Advice on this please

As for growing my herbs, i am going to be growing Basil, coriander, chives and parsley. I was wondering if i can grow them individually in small 20cm pots or is this too small?

yes, these are the things! ok, i think im going to use this type of container and get better compost for them. My garden gets good sun but is also sheltered from the winds as it has a very high wall and fence either side

thanks, il take this on board, i could always try getting a slightly bigger size bag for the beans just incase. I am intending on growing them up canes.

As for the tomato plants can i happily get 2 in this size bag? (16.5" x 14")

thanks for some info!

Hi all, 

i'm hoping you can help me answer some questions which i cannot seem to find the answers too online.

I am starting to grow my own few plants for the first time this year. I am limited on space so i'm going to be doing it all in containers. 

The one thing i'm having trouble finding out is wether i can grow runner beans in a reusable tomato grow bag like this

 The bags measures: 16.5" x 14" 

I have bought 2 already to put my tomato plants in them. 

If they are big enough to use, how many runner beans per bag?



What tree is this?

I thought it was perhaps a type of salix tree?
