The Q&A Archives: container gardening

Question: What's the best soil mix for productive container gardening? My house is up for sale and I don't want to plant a garden for the new home owner.

Answer: The best soil mix for containers is straight potting soil. It comes prepackaged and all you need to do is moisten it well, fill your containers, then plant your plants. Soilless mix (potting soil) drains well, is lightweight in case you want to move your containers, and is rich in organic nutrients. Enjoy your containerized garden!
