Container gardening takes many forms and requires a light-weight, porous soil. Plants in patio pots and raised beds need plenty of water but that water needs to drain and be replaced by oxygen. Roots require an active biotic ecology but the manicured style of most container gardens means that is not going to come from fallen leaves and trees. Fortunately, nearly all the ingredients in Gro-Max® are composted and that process kills weed seeds but generates a wide spectrum of microbes for soil health. Large trees need a heavier soil to hold them upright but Gro-Max® has been used successfully to grow all other plant material. The high organic content means that nitrogen is slow to release over many years so high feeders like veggie plants will need to be fertilized annually.
Organic or synthetic fertilizer should be used to optimize plant growth, especially in vegetable gardens. Fertilizer will supply plants with necessary nutrients to produce healthy plants. Fruit and vegetable plants are heavy feeders. Increased fertilizer may be required for crop yield.
