What kind of Fertilizer should I use? How Often?
Regular fertilizing is important when growing in containers! A good liquid fertilizer applied every 2-3 weeks will produce a healthy harvest! Be sure to follow package instructions to avoid plant damage. Miracle-Gro is a basic product, there are a number of premium options too. Sea Magic is a mineral booster sold through Burpee.com It works!
How much should I water?
It varies by season, soils, plant type and exposure!
An inexpensive moisture meter available at most local garden centers or online is an invaluable tool for keeping your garden moisture at the proper level.
What kind of soil should I use?
Do not use regular garden soil! Use only soil intended for Container Gardens or Potting Soil. We recommend Fox Farm soils such as Happy Frog or Ocean Forest Organic. Available online, at local nurseries and True Value Hardware.
