Hi so this is my first year gardening so I’m trying to figure out exactly what size containers I need for my vegetables since in ground or raised beds aren’t an option at this time. As of now I have 12in pots, 18in pots, and 5 gallon containers. In the 12in pots I was thinking of cucumbers and peppers. For the 18in pots I was thinking of green beans and zucchini. For the 5 gallon I wanted tomato and eggplant. Do these sizes seem correct? Do you think I should put the green beans and zucchini in a 5 gallon instead of the 18in pots? How many should go in each container?
