Container Gardening and Pot Size
Hello to my pepper loving friends at Hot Pepper Forum!
I'm entertaining a new idea with regard to growing peppers this year.........growing in pots.. This decision was not simply because I wanted to do so, but as a result of two different issues........my health and it's varying nature day by day, and also the fact that my garden area these days is simply a mud hole. We had not had rain for a couple of weeks and my garden "growing area" was still too wet to till. I found out what the problem was a couple of years back........something called "hard pan", and I suppose it's the result of all my tilling over the years resulting in a nonporous layer of dirt a couple of feet down.
My question to all of you today with regard to the pot size issue...........what size of pot do I need to put my pepper plants in to come close to the growth size I'd get if planting in the ground?? I do realize that planting in the ground is ultimately superior, but due to the reasons stated above I'm just not sure if I can go that route anymore..
Thanks in advance for any info you might have!
