What Plants Can I Grow In A Pot?

For the photo for Container Gardening on the Home Page, I gathered a collection of plants I am currently doing a simple experiment with to see how they generally perform growing in basic pots  under basic conditions. So far all the plants are all growing well...we'll keep watching them to see what happens over time.

The plants I am experimenting with include: pepper, coriander, wild celery, parsley, basil, rocket, lettuce, kale, eco flowers, feijoa, tomato, raspberry, pineapple, blueberry, stevia, aloe vera, turmeric, rosemary and marigold. To follow is a series of photos showing each plant.  

I will share with you the highlights of the stories of each of these plants, how they are performing in my situation and lessons we can all learn from this.
