Which Of These Can Be Grown In Pots?

moonwolf_gwNovember 19, 2010

Hi everyone, here is a list of what I'll be winter sowing this year (my first time in doing so) and I was wondering which of these plants will grow in pots. I know the cosmos and sunflowers at least can grow in a container but what about the others?

Balloon Flower

Butterfly Weed


False Indigo

Black Eyed Susan






Forget Me Not


Blanket Flower






Thanks in advance,

Thanks, Al!

That makes it a little easier of what I can put in pots around the garden.

So Al, is there anything that will not grow in gritty mix? :)

Since I obviously haven't grown even a tiny fraction of the plants that COULD be grown in the gritty mix, I can't offer a definitive answer, but I can say that to date, I've only found 1 plant that prefers the 5:1:1 mix over the gritty mix. Even that does well in the gritty mix, it just seems to do better in the 5:1:1.
