Newbie Please Help! ( A soil mix question)
My husband and I are new to container vegetable gardening and are trying to figure out the best way to fill three planters we built (they're pretty large each one is about 6'L x 2'W x 1.5'D). It seems like a lot of people have success with the 5-1-1 soil mix, however it seems a bit of pain to take everything out and refill every year especially since our outdoor space is up two flights of stairs, through a quirky Brooklyn apartment, above a garage. Anyway, we are planning on growing peppers in one, tomatoes in another, and the third will have peas and cucumbers. All of which will have a border of trailing tuberous begonias for color. We were wondering what you all would suggest for some newbies in desperate need of help. Thanks and any advice is much appreciated!!!!
