Can someone tell me just how much a potted plant/tree cultivated using non-organic media (a gift) would harm an organic garden bed/soil if introduced? Would it dissipate over time, or continue to contaminate and infiltrate deep into said soil?
Your ONLY concern would be if you're Organic certified, which I'm assuming your garden isn't. The conventional past of your new friend is just that, the past. In your organic garden bed, it will soon metabolize and slough off the remnants of chemical fertilizer it received and it will be grow naturally and happily. Congrats man!

Thanks Parker. I've often wondered about this, and never got a satisfactory answer. I assume the same applies to a pot of (potentially) contaminated soil? Cheers, Ian
