I am growing some of my Tomato plants in 15-20 Gallon Containers. I been searching around for Pro-Mix BX but it seems kind of pricey for shipping online. I also found Pro Mix HP at (One of the large garden centers) Pro Mix HP w/ Mycorrhizae in 2 cubic foot bags. My zip code is 18966, I have called a few garden centers that used to have it but don't any more.
It sells for about $16 for 2 Cubic feet. I am looking to get about 12 cubic feet and the cost of this is in my price range, but would like it cheaper or something simlar cheaper if possible.
Here are my other questions.
1.) Would this mix good for tomatoes or is there another recomended for the price (vareties are Ramapo, Black Krim & 4th of july) For peppers (Large cherry red, Long red cayenne, Hungarian Hot wax Yellow & Beaver Dam.)?
2.) Also for container size for tomatoes would 15 gallon be good enough or should I push for 20 gallon? I will go with the bags and any suggestions for the budget? (I am not really concerned about keeping them for next year but it could be a bonsu.
3.) For the peppers, would 5 Gallon be good enough or should I go for 7 Gallon or could I even get away with 3 Gallon?
Many Thanks in advanced,
