December 15, 2006, Newsletter Issue #168: Soil for your container plants

Tip of the Week

ALWAYS buy potting soil mix for your container garden. I canīt emphasize this enough: ALWAYS potting soil, NEVER īgroundī dirt. The potting soil is formulated for root aeration and moisture retention - a must for houseplants and Container Gardens!! I usually buy the 16-17 lb. size; and like Proterra or MiracleGrow (this latter even offers soil with a fertilizer already in it), which can be found at Targets, Home Depot, KMart, etc. I find the packaged soil cheaper at these locations than at specialty garden stores.
