Help! Amend Garden Soil For Containers
To start off this is my first time growing veggies in containers. I used to have a big yard where we were growing in the ground, but our house burned down so we had to move. Now I can only grow in containers.
I asked my husband to pick up some dirt for me yesterday and he came home with 5 big bags of Miracle-GroÃÂ® Organic ChoiceÃÂ® Garden Soil. I of course didn't think and filled up my starter pots and planted some seeds in this stuff.
My first question is will these plants I just started in this stuff be ok? The starter pots I am using are only about 2" wide by 2" deep and obviously will be transplanted into much bigger pots. I will transplant them into soil more suitable for containers.
My second question is how can I amend this soil to be of use in containers? Just add perlite and peat moss? How much should I add?
