Soil for container planting
Posted: Wed Nov 25, 2009 12:21 am
My garden is very small (9x12) and I want to start container planting to expand my garden. Can I fill the entire pot up with ammend compost? Or does it have to be a mixture of potting soil? Also...What is best to plant in pots? This pots are quite large (not sure the gallon size) but they are more than enough room for deep set roots.I have 3 bell pepper plants I want to remove from my garden. Im worried about doing this but when I planted them this spring I thought they perished at the end of the season. Come to find out thats not how it works! I would love to keep the ones I have in my garden now because I guess produce is better on the 2nd or 3rd year? I dunno....I have plenty of broccoli and brussels sprouts seedlings I need to plant as well as broccoli raab seeds....I was also considering using one of the pots to plant potatoes and carrots...sandy soil produce. *sigh* I just don't know what is best. I need some advice from people who know what they are talking about! I have 3 large pots. Teach me something!
