plastic planters in full sun?
This year I am hoping to grow some vegetables and flowers on my sunny deck (more than 8-10 hours of sun) in containers. Terracotta planters seem to be very pricey. It looks like the cheaper option is plastic or resin ones.
Would the heat from the plastic/resin hurt the plants' roots? Or is there a way to keep the planters cool?
The veggies Im planning to grow are eggplant, squash, peppers, tomatoes and okra. Flowers: zinnia, portulaca and calibrachoa.
