You can grow potatoes on your porch, strawberries on your stoop, cilantro on your sill or tomatoes on your…top step. Who said a backyard is required to start a home garden anyway?

One of the simplest and most versatile ways to grow your own fresh vegetables and herbs is to start a container garden.

While it’s especially handy if you live in an area where traditional gardening isn’t an option — like some apartments, condos or even places where the soil isn’t suitable — container gardening offers plenty of perks to plant lovers of all types.

Watch as Extension’s gardening guru, Jeana Myers, shares tips that will help you jumpstart your container garden in no time. Happy gardening!
