Im so excited for spring! I have some questions hopefully someone can help me, or point me to some resources, I have looked everywhere.
My large pots, like 18", have perennials in them, and they are starting to come back. What do I do with them? In the past, I put another inch or two of compost, and/or potting soil on top, with some dry and liquid fertilizers. But my results have not been outstanding. I also suspect an over watering issue.
Should I remove them entirely and replant them in fresh soil, even potted trees, and strawberries? I feel like that will harm the plant. But at the same time I'm afraid it my be compacting my soil and loosing natural nutrients, I'm not sure.
I only use organic, non-animal derived compost and fertilizers. Also, these are for my plants that are not root bound.
I love the idea and price of just topping the planter off will compost, rock dust, and some dry fertilizer. But, I want to do what is best.
Thanks to anyone who helps!
