Just looked at the roots of 6 vegetable containers that I used different organic soil mixes in.
It's quite interesting, I've been using branches, stumps, leaves and compost in different arrangements to see
what grows best.

Love this. It's such a good way for people to document their systematic experiments in growing and share there results!

Stump vs. branches type hugelkultur. Definitely inspiration for container gardening. Thank you for sharing, come back and post more!
