Recommended pot size?
It's been a week since we had frost, and I'm gearing up for getting my plants outside in a couple of weeks. Better start hardening off I guess.
I'm building a raised bed to house most of my plants, but I'm also doing some in containers. And now I'm browsing for pots. I know a lot of people recommend 5 gallon pots, but I was wondering - what is the required size for the peppers to thrive? 5 gallon pots are fairly expensive, so if I can avoid them and still have good results, I'd prefer that.
I'm interested in the pot size required for the plant to grow comfortably, I can more or less disregard wind as I will keep the plants on my porch and take them inside in case of heavy weather. What are your experiences with various pot sizes?
