container garden setup with smart pots
At 66 I am easing into container gardening on my patio for my vegetable garden with smart pots, timer drip system, and a lot of enthusiasm.
I have 5 big plastic bales of Promix BX that I got at a nursery closout sale for next to nothing a couple of years ago and the have been sitting in my garage. Can I use that in the smart pots that will be sitting on my concrete patio or do I need to add something to make it denser?
If i have 20 smart pots that are mostly 10 gallon pots with a few 5 gallons and a few 20 gallone ones will that be enough soil?
If I'm gardenibg right up to winter frosts with cool crops can I just leave the soil in the pots for the following year if I cover them and replenish the soil bit in the spring?
Thank you soooo much for having this wonderful garden wek. I've been reading you guys for the past few years when the arthritis was so bad that all i could do was "armchair garden."
Thanks also for any advices you can offer.
