Lyn, some things just do better in pots than others that's all. I get the point mind you, but conditions within pots often don't mimic those in garden soil. Most people use MPC when they should use a soil based compost and open ground reacts with the environment in a different manner. It's all about the microbes within the soil, that's why pot growing is almost an art in itself, to get the conditions in which the plant grows best is harder to achieve in a pot than open ground. Plants have sophisticated communication systems a fact few people are aware of and which science is only beginning to understand. Pots isolate plants from these systems and personally I grow very little in pots these days, they always do better in soil in the garden.
