Patio Container Tomatoes

Looking for varieties that are container-growable? It is easier than ever to find garden seeds that can be grown in tight spaces like patios and balconies! True Leaf Market has added an identifying icon that appears as a dark green circle with a white “C” in the center. It can be found on product tiles across category pages alongside the heirloom, organic, AAS Winner, and Staff Favorites icons, as seen below.

In addition to this icon, we have also improved the filtering functionality on each category page. Simply select the characteristics you want your seeds to have, and unapplicable products will be filtered out of the displayed results. This not only applies to the container-growable characteristic but also to seed type (heirloom, organic, etc.), growing location, zones, and more!

We hope these features will help you locate your favorite seeds and new varieties that best fit your growing needs.

Here you can learn about the importance of soil drainage, light, fertilizer, and more! Container gardening is become more popular than ever as it allows individuals to produce their own food regardless of small living quarters and not owning property. Food security is a problem that people around the world are facing. When it comes to urban areas that are experiencing "food deserts" due to limited access to affordable and nutritious food, container gardens are the answer. Growing microgreens and sprouts in connection with a container gardening is also a great way to increase regular access to fresh produce all year long.
