How deep do plant pots need to be to grow vegetables?
For most plants, a 6-to 8-inch-deep planter box is sufficient. But the depth may vary for some vegetables. Turnips, cucumbers, broccoli, beets, lettuce and green onions can all grow well in a pot at that depth, but other vegetables, like cabbage, need a deeper depth of at least 10 inches. Our large vegetable pots is perfect for growing all the vegetables.

Drainage is vital for potting plants. This pot has two drainage holes on its two sides with white rubber plug on it. If you put the plug on, the water level indicator will work. The planter is equipped with a soil separator, under which is an area where stores water. When the area is full of water, the red stick in the indicator will rise to the maximum line. And when the stick drops to the minimum line, it means that you’d better water your plant again in 3-5 days.
Pots: the bigger, the better
Large pots provide enough space for roots to grow. Avoid using small pots as they often can’t retain enough water to get through hot days. Plus, the bigger your pot, the more vegetables you can grow! Also you can use barrels, buckets, baskets, boxes, bath- and other tubs, and troughs—anything that holds soil.
