Ground cherries in container

Postby Spin_86 » Jun 10, 2010 2:03 pm

I'm getting ready to transplant my ground cherries into containers and just read that it is better to plant them in pairs for pollination. I have a large pot 12" across and 9" deep...anyone know if it would be better to plant two in that pot or just one and put the other in a second pot. I'm running low on containers, but I don't want to stifle the growth of anything either.

Thanks in advance if anyone has any suggestions!

You'd probably be best planting them in individual pots, as long as the plants are close to or beside each other it will make no different in pollination but the plants won't have to compete with each other.
