I am gardening virgin. Never touched anything that growsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Ever. So logically I've decided to start some vegetable gardening in containers. Done a little research but still feel lost.
I've read many, many articles and forum postings on this site, which has answered a few of my questions.
First off, I live in Calgary Canada which is a Zone 3b. My last frost is late may.
I have bought the following seeds:
-mini mixed pepper
-swiss chard mostruoso
-sage (think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to not use these and replace with basil )
-radish scarlete globe
-spinach long standing bloomsdale
-peas provence container variety
I have the following containers so far:
2 x 18'' ( over 5 gallon) pots ( plan on putting mixed peas in one, peppers in other )
2 x 12'' pots ( 3 gallon ( plan on radish and swiss chard in these )
2 x 8'' pots ( 1 gallon ) ( plan on onion and thyme in one and spinach in the other )
I have 75L of organic potting soilless mix and one smaller bag of schultz premium potting soil plus
On my shopping list is:
-Mini 4 tier greenhouse
-jiffy windowsill greenhouses https://us.st12.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/yhst-17028657831924_2049_34672264
-tomato fertilizer ( or vegetable type )
-tomato, basil & hot pepper seeds
-more containers for these seeds?
My question is am I on the right track? What could I do to improve my plans? What else should I purchase to make this more successful? Any seeds / plants I should purchase instead? Any other advice would be so appreciated & Thank you in advance for your help!
