Soil for Upside Down Gardening
I tried growing tomatoes upside down and the water ran right through the container without actually soaking the root ball. I'm not sure what I need to add to the potting soil to allow the water to soak in well before running out the bottom. Maybe I should add some clay to the potting soil? Any thoughts?
