Real Homes Logo By Melanie Griffiths of Real Homes | Slide 1 of 18:            If you want to grow a home harvest on the patio, these vegetable garden container ideas offer plenty of inspiration to get started.                                        Container vegetables – and fruit – are ideal for small gardens, balconies and roof gardens, but they are also a good option for those with bigger plots, as they add interest and height, allow you to plant where soil might be poor, and easily change the layout of your crops year on year.                                        From beans and brassicas to tomatoes and pumpkins, there are so many different kitchen garden ideas that can be grown in containers, so start by choosing varieties that you love to eat.                                        'Take some time to consider what would suit your needs and where you may have space for containers in your garden,' says gardening expert Leigh Clapp. 'Positioning close to the kitchen allows you to pop out quickly and grab a quick handful or a larger harvest as needed.'
