Quality vs. Quantity??

by David
(St. Louis)

I am just about ready to start seeds for my new 6 pot dutch bucket system. Wondering if I could put two tomatoes and also two peppers in each pot? I will be pruning to maintain a single vine which i've had lots of practice with in my outdoor garden. Thanks for your help.

Answer from Stella/Simon:
Hi David,

We feel like that is too much for one bucket. You will soon find the plants get pretty big. Even a pepper plant needs room to spread out. You also need to consider the roots need room, too.

We have never put more than one or two of those type crops in each dutch bucket. And mostly, we only put one to a pot. If you crowd four in there, my guess is that none of them will thrive.

Hope this helps!
