    As for compost I use anything. It always gets mixed with perlite and chicken manure pellets for final potting up.

    I mix mine with chicken manure pellets on final potting up too - I think I saw it done on the sea springs/Dorset naga video?

    For the best harvest would it be best to use a higher quantity of smaller pots, or fewer, larger pots?

    For example generally speaking, for windowsill varieties, would 4x 2 litre pots produce more, or less than 2x 4 litre pots?
