So, this is what I do to pot my plants on in containers and you know the plants are going to grow only really as well as well as what you put in the containers for them to grow in. So, I really fuzz and I use this wonderful screened compost but not just the compost because it is great, if you can add some like just a basic tub of Granular Organic Fertilizer and sprinkle that over your whatever it is you are going to be putting into your container and then mix it in well and fill up your container because this organic fertilizer will basically feed your plant right through its lifetime in that container.
In each year then just top up the container with some fresh compost, maybe a little more addition of the organic fertilizer and this way with regular watering and some food and fertilizer in the soil that you are putting into your container. If you do not have compost you can actually use a good garden soil, blend it a bit some say leaf or some manure or hopefully some compost if you have some and that is going to keep your plants happy and give you a beautiful show that you can enjoy up close and personal in your favorite containers.
