Question On Plant And Pot Sizing
I decided to do container gardening a couple of months ago, and started off with Smart Pots fabric pots. In order to know what size to buy (they are measured by gallons), I went to their web site to look at their recommendations. I don't know if Smart Pots have some kind of different feature that causes them to have a different pot size recommendation than other pots, but here are some of their measurements:
Tomato plant - 20 gallon
Pepper plant - 10 gallon
Cantaloupe - 15 gallon
My question is that when I see other information on container gardening, there is no recommendation for tomatoes to be planted in 20 gallon containers, nor do other plant pot manufacturers recommend pepper plants to be in 10 gallon containers. Are the measurements different because of the pot being made of fabric? Or are these measurements just unrealistic?
