Tips for Gardening in Containers

  1. Add lime when preparing a potting mixture for the container. Lime supplies the necessary elements of calcium and magnesium. It also adjusts the pH range suitable for optimum plant growth.
  2. Mix potting mixture thoroughly. All ingredients must be blended sufficiently in order to create a homgeneous mixture. Improper mixture can lead to poor root growth and causes poor quality plants.
  3. Choose a container that has adequate drainage. The water must be able to drain in order to prevent plant rot.
  4. Choose the correct size container for variety. Some plant varieties require more space for root growth.

Tips for Better Potting Mixtures

  1. Expose peat moss or bark to rain for several weeks before using. Both are difficult to wet and require soaking.
  2. Avoid over-fertilization. This can cause root damage.
  3. Cover potting mixtures with plastic cloth to keep the unused mixture free of weed seed.
  4. Place potting mixture in full sun, cover with clear plastic and seal down the side during high temperature periods to kill weeds and harmful fungi. Soil should be no more than a foot deep to ensure sufficiently high temperature at the bottom of the pile. This process may require several days for a beneficial heat buildup.
