Repotting - nursery cells to rootbound plants

neuf(5 Indy)April 28, 2014

First...thanks to Al for sharing his knowledge about soils. After reading a ton of discussion about 5-1-1, I have been searching the forum for the definitive tapla post on repotting in general and using the mix. I, and a huge bunch of others, am about to be repotting a bunch of flat plants (coleus, begonias, petunias, etc.) and need to help some older plants older plants where root care may be involved as well.

If this subject has been covered well and a link is available, please post it.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Has anyone tried growing Lily Trees in containers such as in the 30 gallon tubs besides me? Filled them up with Miracle Grow a few years back when container growing veggies in them, including tomatoes. Had problems with a Tomato Hornworm so changed over to growing flowers in the pots instead.
