EUGENE, Ore. — Container gardening is a lot of fun, and you can grow more things than you think in a container.
It’s also great if you don’t have much space and want to bring a little nature to a storefront, patio, or a deck.
Some plants that grow well in containers are raspberry shortcake, a dwarf raspberry, and also a bountiful blueberry, which is a dwarf blueberry.
Also, you can always plant fun, annual color in a container and change it out every year.
Lemon trees and other citrus trees can make a great container pot as well.
For fruits and vegetables, you can grow things like peppers, tomatoes, squash and melons.
Your can also plant slow-growing trees and shrubs, like lemon cyprus, or even a Japanese plumb yew.
