Hi, garden folks. MAY58, who lives in Puerto Rico, is looking for suggestions on vegetables to grow in containers. Can anybody help him out? I gave him a link to the Forums and will also check back for any answers.

Hello MAY58. Ken here with The Home Depot in the Chicago area. Welcome to the
How-to-Community. Since you live in Zone 11, you basically have summer weather
all year long. You can only grow warm season vegetables, but you can plant them
at any time of the year. Your warm season vegetables would be beans, cucumbers,
eggplant, peppers, summer squashes, and tomatoes. I’m giving you a link to help
you with container and soil selection; and a link to our Garden Club Plant Finder to
help you with plant selection. If you have any more questions, visit your local Home
Depot and ask one of our Certified Nursery Specialists to help you. Take care.
