What’s the Best Soil for Fruit Containers?
By: Jessie Keith
“Hello. What is the best soil that you have available to grow citrus trees and blackberries in containers? I’m looking for the soil ph to be around 6.0.” Question from Jerrold of Pearland, Texas
Answer: For container gardening, we recommend either Black Gold Natural & Organic Potting Mix or Black Gold Waterhold Cocoblend Potting Mix. Both are fertile, water holding, and have a pH around 6.0. They are also OMRI Listed for organic gardening, which makes them good choices for edible growing. Be sure to stick with dwarf berry and citrus varieties for container growing.
