Companion planting in your vegetable garden can discourage insects and produce higher yields. However, some vegetables are incompatible, and when planted near one another in your garden, they may contribute to reduced crop yields or increased disease and insects.

Onions grow best when they are planted away from beans and peas in your vegetable garden, as they can stunt each others growth.

Peas prefer to be planted away from garlic, leeks, onions, potatoes and shallots. Garlic and onions can retard the growth of peas.

A greenhouse is a great asset when growing vegetables in your garden, extending your growing season and even providing you with fresh vegetables through the winter and early spring. Successful greenhouse vegetable gardening requires the right environment, taking into consideration heat (in cooler months), cooling (in warm months), ventilation, air circulation, shading, humidity and lighting.

Starting seeds: Seed starting for a vegetable garden is a common use for a greenhouse. Greenhouse vegetable gardening gives an early start to your garden. You need containers, soil, fertilizer, water, and in cool, northern areas, heat and light. Propagation mats under seed flats helps germination by warming the soil. Seeds can also be planted directly into a soil bench warmed by a soil cable.

Heating: Heat for greenhouse vegetable gardening can be provided with electric, natural gas or LP gas heaters. Electric heaters are simple. 240 volt heaters are generally more efficient than 120 volt, but a 120 volt heater is generally adequate for heating a small greenhouse when controlled by a separate heavy-duty thermostat. Natural gas and LP heaters should be properly vented, providing fresh air for combustion and exhausting fumes, and equipped with a good thermostat. Less common methods include in-the-floor radiant heating or an extension of a forced-air home heating system to an attached greenhouse.

Growing fresh vegetables is one of the highlights of my summer gardening experience. To me, there is nothing quite like taking out an empty basket and coming back into the house with a basket full of fresh veggie harvest. But if you don’t have much space, vegetable gardening might not seem possible. It is though. You can grow an entire Vegetable Garden on a Deck and get a great harvest for your efforts.

I have gone back and forth in my mind about my vegetable garden. Two years ago, I had a 1000 square foot garden filled with vegetables. Alas, the squirrels made it their mission to eat the entire crop almost down to the last vegetable. (read about that disaster here .) Last year, I transformed that garden into a perennial vegetable garden. None of the vegetables produced much and the tomatoes were a disaster. Not being a person to be defeated by critters or diseased plants, I persevered! This year I am trying to grow an entire vegetable garden on a deck just outside my back door.

Savor the flavors of vegetables harvested fresh from your own backyard and enjoy the rewards and fun of growing tasty and nutritious food. We've got all the products you need for your vegetable garden.

A longtime customer favorite, this lightweight yet practically indestructible watering can is perfectly balanced for easy carrying and pouring. The big 3-gallon capacity saves trips. Removable rose has a stainless steel face plate that comes off for cleaning. Buy two for a balanced load! Durable polyethylene plastic with removable stainless steel rose.

Richly hued raised bed made from sturdy yet lightweight powder-coated steel complements your landscape and showcases plants. Extra deep to accommodate large plants. Lightly textured surface. Raised beds are easier to plant and tend than in-ground beds, with fewer pests and weeds. They warm up earlier in spring, too, so you can get a jump on the growing season.
