*New Container Garden*...Advice? Tips? Words of Wisdom?
Just moved into a new place in IL from CA. I am expanding my efforts in container gardening big time. Out in Cali I had some success with herbs, tomatoes and strawberies. I also learned the cruel world of bolting and improper sunlight (hence my tiny tom tomatoes growing 3 feet tall!!)
In my new place I get full sun, west facing.
I am planning to grow the following:
Strawberries (unsure of variety)
Carrots (little finger)
Edamame (envy soybeans)
Romaine (Tom Thumb) and Spinach (melody) **same container**
Corn (oriental baby)
And various herbs (Basil, cilantro, parsley, dill, oregano, chives, sage, thyme)
Any advice or tips to help me out- especially given the new environment?!?!
I am also wondering if the varieties are OK for containers and if so, what size for the veggies and herbs. I suffocated oregano in my last garden and want everything to thrive this time :)
