What can I plant or is Autumn the wrong time of year for planting any type of veggies.
I would like to try some container veg.

some of the plants we sow in late summer for fall harvest are cabbage, kale, mustard (the brassicas). Some others to perhaps give a try are peas, snowpeas.
good luck with the fall gardens~

Any of what Carolyn mentioned would grow fine in large containers. I would also add kohlrabi, radish, lettuce, spinach, arugula and pak choi. I do not know your zone, but I can and am growing much off these and just started many of them. Of course, I am expecting a warm September.

Hi Charles I come over to the wonderful USA 24th August not home until 11th sep which would start to feel much sharper days.

Possibly for me in Uk start to sow seeds Spring.

Wanted to know if container veg ok to grow on.

I use 5 gallon (18.927059 liter) pots or larger, but radish can be grown in small rectangular planter boxes. I love French Breakfast Radish: http://www.gardenbuddies.com/forum/messages/4309/1215221.html You could probably also use smaller pots for the pak choi. ;-)
