I just found a brilliant website that sells heritage & heirloom seeds - The Real Seed Co - I've ordered a batch and earmarked the page as a fave!  Thanks everyone but does anyone have any advice on using containers?

Growing organically from seed & container gardening

Hi everyone,

I am hoping to begin growing some veg in my small garden - specifically kale, spinach, beetroot, carrots, broccoli (ordinary & purple sprouting) plus a few other things.  I am a juicer and I want to try and grow some of my own produce organically as I am worried about pesticides etc.

My questions are these:  is okay to grow from conventional seeds rather than pay for organic ones?  I don't want any GMO seeds or anything like that and I don't know if the horror stories I hear from The US apply here in respect of GM seeds, so if anyone can put my mind at rest I'd be really pleased.

Secondly, I have a tiny garden with a small (8ft by 4ft) veg patch,  can I grow any of the crops in containers or pots?  If so is there any specific techniques or advice I should follow?

Thanks for you help - I look forward to any replies.
