Planting Leggy Plants

Anonymous added on May 9, 2014 | Answered

How would you plant a leggy plant outdoors to grow to its best potential? Would you bury the stem? What do you think of the earth box? Is there anything that can be done for these poor plants. Thank you.

    Leggy plants are normally the result of too little light. You should be able to grow it fine in these boxes. Though, depending on the type of plant, I would recommend placing it in a sheltered location until it becomes stronger. You can plant it deeper if you wish and place it in an area with more light.
