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
Milkweeds
False Indigo
Black Eyed Susan
Cosmos
Datura
Sunflowers
Scabiosa
Nigella
Forget Me Not
Nasturtium
Blanket Flower
Penstemon
Mallow
Veronica
Clarkia
Celosia

Thanks in advance,

Brad AKA Moonwolf

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.
