I'm just quoting what I read on that Gardenweb site. I have always used
compost in my mix and have read that veggies, especially tomatoes,
require a layer of compost in the container to grow right. I guess the
non-compost people suggest that all the nutrients in a container garden
should come from fertilization. I also need to become more familiar
with fertilization since I don't think I do that correctly either. I
usually buy those Miracle Grow packets you mix with water and every
plant but the tomatoes get the same feeding. The tomatoes get the
special Miracle Grow tomato mix.
