container soil thing...
i read enough about soil thing on this forum to get myself completely confused.
i need to find out what would be a good soil mix for fig plants that i ordered. the thing is, i would just use miracle grow soil, but since it's going to grow something that my kids will eat (possibly) i want to make sure i'm using something that is good. i don't trust the soils around my house.. one of the reason why i want to use container.
i read and understand the use of turface/gran-i-grit/pine park mix. however, i know for sure, that thing will not hold water long enough during the day here. we have some rather big containers outside of my house with miracle grow soil, and plants usually wilt if we skip to water it even a day. at the same time, i like the idea of getting enough air to the roots.
what would be the ideal container soil mix around zone 7 where the day temp can go up to 100 degrees? i don't mind watering every day, but don't really want to water it twice a day.
