You can grow them in large pots, you just have to keep them well nourished and keep the water up. Zuke plants grow pretty big so they drink quite a bit on hot days, especially with those big leaves. I found out quite by accident that they also grow very well in part-shade. I stuck an extra plant in a shady spot, as I hadn't the heart to toss it in the compost and it flourished better there than any other zuke I had grown in full sun. It actually never developed powdery mildew on its leaves either, something I struggled with in full sun locations.
Good luck! Gardening is so fun and rewarding!
That is so neat! My FIL was a Gardener and he always said I just throw stuff out and they grow lol. I know he put a lot more work into it but he cracked me up! He definitely had a green thumb and we would always pick stuff from the garden for dinner and can tomatoe juice, salsa ect. While we were there!

Hi from the IN/OH border. I am new to gardening but i am hoping to start trying and was pointed here for help with questions when I have some!

I finally kept my grocery store basil alive as well as propagated it, and my mint I planted last year came back! I know this isn't super impressive as they are both easy to grow but I am very excited!

I'm also attempting to grow Buckeye trees that I sprouted from seeds so crossing my fingers for successful transplanting of those.

Hope everyone has a great day!

hello and welcome to TEG from mid-Michigan. :)

Welcome, from North East Tennessee!

Just planted hardneck garlic this year after at least a decade hiatus, so I feel like a newbie at it again.

I can understand excitement when something comes back, I am myself for most things, but, ah, you may want to keep a close eye on the mint. It can be very invasive. Sort of like the lemon balm that got away from me, and the neighbors two houses and a mile away have been 'thanking' me for, lol.....
