Post #8093081

I have posted a thread that contains some tips that I think have at least the potential to become part of the bag of tricks container gardeners employ to deal with heavy (water-retentive soils). I didn't want to post it on multiple forums, so I posted where I'm most at home - the Container Gardening Forum. For those that might already know everything I shared, I apologize, but I'm most interested in helping those who are struggling with waterlogged soils and want/need some relief. The embedded link below will take you to the thread:

I am posting this message on a few forums in the hope that those who read it will feel it merits sending growers struggling with water retention issues in containers over for a read as you come across them in your forum adventures.

Lol - oops - I think I messed up and posted this note AND the thread it refers to on the same forum. Another 'duh!' moment. ;o) My bad.

Your soil recipes calls for CRF ... what is CRF?

Actually, I meant to link to this thread:

and not to the Container Gardening Forum in general. I've edited the original post. Sorry for the confusion.

CRF = Controlled Release Fertilizer (like Osmocote & others).
