gardenmaking.com - Successful container gardening depends on the right container and soil. Careful feeding and watering also keep your containers thriving.
Garden Making Editor-in-Chief Beckie Fox describes:
1. Choosing a container: consider the size and weight, the material it's made from and the style. Does it have adequate drainage?
2. The right soil: potting soil vs soilless mix. No garden soil.
3. Feeding: fertilize more frequently than garden plants, but much more lightly (more dilute)
4. Watering: good drainage, water thoroughly
