I know that many Casa readers are trying their hands at container gardening this Summer. Container gardening is a great option for those of us who live in urban areas or don't have any yard space. However, your soil requirements are a little different for containers than they are for regular garden plots. To get the most bang for your container buck, use soil that is light, well-drained, and retains moisture. You can specifically ask for a container mix at your local gardening store, or make your own blend using vermiculite or perlite, finished compost, and sphagnum moss. Want more tips?
