GITG Raised Bed Mix
Based on Mel’s Mix from Square Foot Gardening, but adapted for Arizona gardening, I use the soil in all my beds and containers. It’s available at Arizona Worm Farm.
Ollas are my favorite way to water containers. I wouldn’t garden in containers here in the low desert during the summer without them. Use code GROWING to save.
