Casa Quickie: Contain Yourself

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? Check out Gardener's Supply's container gardening page.
