Answer: Container plants need good drainage which is best obtained with potting soils which is lighter and better draining than top soil. I'd suggest a mixture of peat moss, soilless potting soil and compost at equal amounts in the container. Also, use time release fertilizer such as Osmocote and Once to keep the plants healthy. They also need to be put on a frequent watering schedule and mulched to help to keep in their moisture.
