More than just Miracle Grow

jen2swtMarch 6, 2012

Hi all

New to the container gardening scene. As I'm preparing my 5 gallon buckets and 18 gal bins for gardening, I'm confused on what exactly type of mix I need. Say I bought the Miracle Grow mix, do I need to add anything else to that? Lime, fertilizer? I'm a little lost.
