Re: Re: Container Gardening


    One of the biggest problems with container gardening is that the soil dries out more quickly than in the ground. You can help to alleviate that by placing a large plastic soda bottle in eat container.  You cut the bottom off (or a large hole in the bottom) and put the bottle into the soil upside down.  The water will seep out of the bottle slowly as the soil dries. You can easily see when you need to add water to the bottle.  I would do this along with at least weekly soaking the container well.
