In my garden, which is terraced, I need to start planting vegetables. Tomatoes have a reputation for being excellent climbing plants, but despite this, I have no interest in cultivating them. They make a mess, and I can’t eat the fruit anyway because it’s not big enough. So, what can I develop further? What do you suggest?

Hello, Peter! Please find a list of recommendations below: Garden Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)* As members of the legume family, beans and their relatives, such as broad beans, runner beans, and soya beans, are all capable of fixing nitrogen into the soil as they grow. Broad beans, runner beans, and soybeans are just some examples. This enhances the structure of the soil, making it more fertile and reducing the amount of fertilizer that will be required for subsequent plantings to be successful. The bean pods themselves are edible, and the plant as a whole is capable of producing a respectable quantity of tasty vegetables in a relatively short amount of time.

Gourds (Lagenaria siceraria): Gourds are the fruits of perennial vines, and there are many different varieties of gourds to choose from, so you can be sure to find one that will grow well in your garden. Gourds can be used for a variety of purposes, including decoration, cooking, and medicinal purposes. They are available in a wide variety of forms, from small ornamental varieties to large decorative fruits shaped like watermelons or pumpkins, and even in the form of long stripes that can be used to fashion vegetable marrows! Because their roots secrete chemicals that suppress soil-borne pathogens, gourd plants of any kind contribute to the prevention of widespread diseases in the ground. There is a benefit to other vegetables as well, such as potatoes.
Lettuce (such as the crisp varieties known as “Little Gem” or the medium-sized varieties known as “Iceberg”): Lettuce is very simple to cultivate. It thrives in cool weather, so the best time to plant it is in the spring or the fall. It does best in full sun but will grow in some shade.


Parsley (Petroselinum crispum): Parsley is another plant that thrives in full sun, but it is also tolerant of partial shade. Parsley can be found in most grocery stores. You can sow parsley seed directly into your garden bed, but it is best to begin the process indoors, where the temperature of the soil is more stable, because parsley is sensitive to sudden temperature shifts.


Peas (such as sugar snap peas, climbing French varieties, or traditional English half-runner beans) Peas are an excellent source of protein and contain all eight essential amino acids, making them an excellent option for vegetarians and vegans. Peas can be found in a variety of forms. They don’t get very tall, so you can easily train them to grow up the side of a wall by using some twine or netting as a support system, which makes them perfect for growing in pots on a balcony because of their location.


Capsicum annuum, commonly known as peppers, is one of my favourite vegetables to cultivate because they can be grown in various forms, colours, and sizes. Capsaicin is a phytochemical that may help protect against cancer and is found in high concentrations in sweet peppers, which also have a low-calorie count. If chillies are what you’re after, however, you should get sweet peppers rather than hot ones.

You have the option of selecting red, orange, yellow, or green peppers, depending on the length of time it takes you to become uninterested in each color. Then, when the growing season is over, you can harvest your peppers and put them away in a cool, dry place for several months so that you can eat them throughout the entire winter.

Potatoes, also known as Solanum tuberosum, can be successfully grown from seed or from tubers that have been purchased, provided that they are exposed to an adequate amount of sunlight. Tomato plants and potato plants do not get along well, so it is best to keep tomato plants a safe distance away from potato plants. Potatoes are a very versatile vegetable.

Planting potatoes too close to sage is another bad idea because that plant emits chemicals that slow down the growth of potatoes. Be sure to give your potatoes plenty of water on a consistent basis while you wait for them to mature into potatoes so that they don’t wilt and die! Potatoes are such an essential part of our diet that it surprises me that we only season them with salt and don’t add any other flavours. If you want to give your food a more robust flavour, try cooking it with some rosemary or wild garlic leaves.

Additional Suggestions: These plants will thrive in containers, but if you want to use them as part of a traditional garden, you should plant them in a location where they won’t be overlooked. For example, you shouldn’t put them on your balcony because people will trip over them.

Tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum): If you live in an area that is either too hot or too dry for lettuce to thrive, you might want to give tomatoes a try as an alternative crop. They thrive in loamy, nutrient-dense soil; consequently, you should probably plant them indoors if you don’t live in an area that receives adequate rainfall. Even though tomatoes are capable of pollinating themselves, you will get better yields out of them if there is at least one other variety of tomatoes pollinating nearby. This is because there is a greater chance that they will produce fruit of a higher quality and that it will ripen more consistently.

Tomatoes need to be watered frequently, but not to the point where they become waterlogged. This is because tomatoes do not thrive in environments that are constantly wet. If you would rather water your plants with a soaker hose than a watering can, it is best to water them gradually over the course of several hours rather than all at once. This will allow the plants to better absorb the water and ensure that it is used effectively.

When should you plant your tomatoes? It is best to start your tomato seeds indoors under lights about six to eight weeks before the last frost. If you live in an area where there is a chance of frost occurring early in the spring, you should wait until very late in the spring to plant them outside because there is a chance that they will not survive the cooler temperatures.

Final Thoughts

Growing vegetables in containers is the most successful ways of growing plants in a garden with terraces. It doesn’t matter what you use; a container can be anything from a pot to an old bathtub. On the other hand, because you will need some kind of support for them, such as twine, netting, or even chicken wire, the cost of growing them in containers is typically higher than the cost of growing vegetables in the ground.

If you are not willing to spend time caring for your plants on a regular basis, then you should probably look elsewhere for a solution to your gardening needs because this type of gardening requires a great deal more upkeep than traditional gardening does. If, on the other hand, you are one of those people who, like me, takes pleasure in getting dirt under their fingernails, then you should give some thought to planting vegetables in containers.

Your labour will not be in vain because the quality of the produce you harvest will improve, and there will be a lower risk of harmful insects and other organisms preying on it. It doesn’t take up much more space than the vegetables themselves to have a container garden, so unless you’re planting for some kind of competition, it might be worth your while to give this type of gardening a try.

Some water is all that is required to keep the vegetables alive if you are cultivating them in a location that receives a significant amount of sunlight (e.g., tomatoes). On the other hand, if you live in an area where there is less light or where the temperatures are cooler, you will need to get more creative with your strategy for watering the plants. This is because the plants won’t do well if they don’t receive enough water.

As I was saying earlier, potatoes prefer soil that is dry, while tomatoes can’t grow without a lot of moisture. Consequently, I would recommend purchasing two containers, one of which would be used for the potato plant and the other would be used for everything else. Because of this, you will be able to determine which ones are thriving and which ones are not because, if they do not receive an adequate amount of water, they will perish.

Happy planting!
