Fall Edible Container
Fall Edible Container Project
Enjoy fall veggies with this simple container garden. Perfect for small spaces & patios! This is a freshly planted container. Please be aware that cabbages, collards, kale & cauliflower can grow rather large & will need space. When it gets too cold out for the lettuce, remove the lettuce to allow more room for the larger & hardier greens that will continue growing until spring.
Step 1: Find a spot outside that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight.
Step 2: Choose a large pot that is 20 inches in diameter with drainage holes
Step 3: Fill the container about 3/4 full with Pike's Potting & Container Soil
Step 4: Mix in 1 cup of Dr. Earth's All Purpose Fertilizer
Step 5: Gently remove plants & place in soil according to diagram
Step 6: Add more soil making sure to fill in the gaps between plants & water well

- The green leaf lettuce will fade out as frost approaches.
- Remove green leaf lettuce when it is too cold; this will also create more space for the cabbages, kale & collards to grow large.
- Greens need water to grow well.
- Check soil every 2-3 days, if soil feels dry several inches down, water well.
- If the soil feels moist, check back the following day.
- Fertilize monthly with Dr. Earth's All Purpose slow release fertilizer.
