Hey all, I'm a newbie not only here but also to the gardening world. I have a couple
quick questions regarding (obviously) gardening. I recently received a gift of "container
tomatoes" I believe they are going to be cherry tomatoes but I'm not really sure.
I planted in all the good stuff and have sprayed with Garrett Juice and they (and all
the other herbs) have really taken off! I don't know but do I need something for the
tomatoes to grow against? Also I've been carefully eyeing all my plants every day
since planting them. Haven't really seen many red spider mites (maybe 1 or 2). Today
I went out and looked at my tomatoes and it has spider webs all over it. I don't see
any red spider mites under the leaves or any where else on the plant (or on any of
the other plants). Do you think this is something to be concerned about (the webs,
not the lack of red spider mites)? I don't know if it's a good thing and a spider can kill
some nasty bugs...or do red spider mites weave webs?
My other question is we are doing container pots since we started a little late in the
season to till a veggie bed. I've combined the plants in combos that I read that they
liked and did so in container pots about 3 weeks ago. Not that I'm complaining but
with the added help of Garrett Juice they seem to be growing quite fast. I don't know
if being in too small of a pot or cramped in a pot will hinder their growth/kill the plant.
Should I separate or just leave things as the may be?
I'll attach a pic. Starting in the upper left we've got:
Pot 1: Anaheim Peppers
Pot 2: Basil, Oregano & Parsley
Pot 3: Parsley & Chives
Pot 4: Mint
Starting in the upper right we've got:
Pot 1: Tomatoes
Pot 2: Thyme
Pot 3: Sage & Rosemary
Pot 4: Strawberries
Thanks for your help in advance!
