Forget jarred salsas. It doesn’t take much room to grow your own fresh ingredients for spicy sweet homemade salsa. All you need are four containers (sizes indicate pot diameters): one 24”, two 18”, and one 14”. Just follow the planting plan below, making sure to provide support at planting for the tomato and pepper plants. Feel free to mix things up, too, planting the kinds of tomato, peppers, and onions that you like best.
For excellent results, fill containers with premium quality potting mix, such as Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix, which is the ideal weight and texture for container growing. It’s also important to feed plants with Miracle-Gro® Shake ‘n Feed® Tomato, Fruit & Vegetable Plant Food to ensure they get all the nutrition they need. Top notch soil plus just the right plant food equals a powerful combination that will lead to a big harvest! Also, be sure to choose Bonnie Plants® for your Salsa Garden. Bonnie has been around for over a century, so you know you’re getting strong young plants of the very best quality.
