From a fellow grower:
My plan is to start some outdoor plants next Spring. What are my best options? I would rather use pots than just straight planting in the ground. I’ve heard of a “smartpot” and I heard that these work quite well. What size and how many pots should I purchase?
What kind of soil/other nutrients do I need to buy at a local gardening store?
Is growing in pots the best idea? I don’t really know how to combat diseases and pests that well, even though your grow bible had a lot of great tips. I may not be able to visit the plants as often as I’d like, I will most likely be able to 1-2 times per week next Spring, and maybe more often in the summer.
