    Chantenay carrots do very well in containers as they are shorter rooted that most.  I grew them in old recycling boxes with holes drilled in the bottom, and the bottom half filled with chunks of old polystyrene topped off with MPC.  Worked a treat.  

    Globe rooted varieties of beetroot do very well grown the same way.

    Good luck image
