I'm just wondering if anyone uses their mix for potted plants and/or vegetables? If all or most of my tomato seeds do well, I will not have enough space in my boxes. I was planning on using a few large pots for them if needed. What are your experiences?

i do it all the time.

heck, i have a front stone staircase on front yard going to front door/porch and there's many containers there - recently i bought 'busboy' containers and planted strawberries and gladiolus in them (each busboy container ends up being equiv to 2 squares - give or take a couple inches.) if you use a container not originally 'intended' for gardening, make sure you drill holes in the bottom for drainage. Smile

it works for me. i even put tape on the containers to show that they're divided sfg way. *grin*

the mix is the secret to success!! Smile

happy gardening!

I've got herbs, tomatoes, and strawberries in various containers with Mel's Mix. This is the first year I've tried it, but thus far the growth has been remarkable.

Someone gave me a brand new "tomato tree" stand. I plan to buy some sturdy hanging baskets, drill a large hole in the bottom, and plant "Sugar Snack" tomatoes Topsy Turvy style using Mel's Mix. I have no idea what to expect.
