How to Grow in Containers

Container gardening is easy and provides many options. For example, you can move pots to desired locations and take them with you if you move. You can also control the soil to what you need to meet the exact requirements of the plant. Choose a container/pot that fits your needs and design style for your space. It’s best to pick a color that you like and add in a variety of shapes and sizes in that same color container/pot throughout the area.

Items you’ll Need:

  • Container(s)

  • Plant(s)

  • *Screen

  • E.B. Stone Organic Edna’s Best Potting Soil

  • E.B. Stone Organic Sure Start Fertilizer

How To:

Step 1: Choose a container/pot that has holes in the bottom to allow proper drainage and that is at least 2”-4” larger in diameter than the grower pot

Step 2: Make sure to place the container in the correct sun or shade location based on the plant type

Step 3: Fill the container 3/4 of the way full with E.B. Stone Organic Edna’s Best Potting Soil

Step 4: Next, place the plant in the container and sprinkle E.B. Stone Organic Sure Start Fertilizer around the roots

Step 5: Fill the remainder of the container with E.B. Stone Organic Edna’s Best Potting Soil leaving 1”-2” inches of space from the top of the container

Step 6: Water throughly after planting and be sure to continue watering as needed

HOW TO Get proper drainage

Put a *screen over the holes in the bottom of the container/pot to allow only the water to drain out and not the soil.
