How large a pot is needed for the taproot when growing on a patio/DECk? What is the best kind of soil mixture? I'm a senior and never tried this before, though a longtime gardener.

It would be hard to say, as some cultivars have a longer taproot than others. I would say the tallest container you can find. At least a foot tall, but I would recommend more.

You can use a regular potting mix, or mix compost in with it. This will be fine.
