 Mr. Moores,
Try to enhance technique every year. 1st 2 years soil mix was topsoil only. Next 2 years 75/25 mix of topsoil and sphagnum moss. This year 75/25 mix of professional growers mix and topsoil.
Fertilize twice a year with a mix of bone meal, blood meal, super phosphate, a root fertilizer call Root Blast, and depending on the amount of rain incurred and forecast potash. The end of March or early April, and again 3rd week of July.
MDB's and SDB's are planted 4/container. TB's 2/container. 1/3 of garden divided every year. Entire garden divided every 3 years.
Hope this answers your questions, feel free to ask more, best regards, Martin
