Need help with pots & sizes

bgthumb(5A)March 29, 2013

Having trouble finding correct sizing for each veggie type.
For tomatoes-10 or 15 gallon
Cucumber-7 or 10gallon
Swiss chard & onions-5 or 7 gallon
serrano pepper,bell pepper,Radicchio,baby bok choi & spinach-2 to 3gallon
Baby romaine-1gallon
carrots,broccoli,celery-?
Should this be fine in the range of gallons?I want to keep it small to save on soil,but not so small I risk rootbound & don't get good harvest.Thanks for all that replied to my 1st post.I'm kinda in a hurry to buy pots.But want to make sure I get the right sizes.I'm getting foxfarm ocean forest soil to use,$20 per 1.5 cu ft.Can't get it any cheaper.Might mix it with with cheaper organic soil to save.

The pots you have chosen are interesting and I considered purchasing some but the shipping charges are insane. They want $100.10 to ship 50 of them. Don't know where you are but you might check out Green House Mega Store. At least for me their shipping is much more reasonable.
