I love BB and want to start a container garden, I have tough big wooden troughs. Any hints recommendations for a new gardener?

Planted bb plants in Invercargill a few weeks ago as climate autumnal. I think they will be good early spring. Often whatever is at garden centres will be an indication on what to put in. Also put kale and few lettuce plants in and will put garlic in in June
