When container gardening, couldn't you use smaller containers to grow plants than is generally recommended, as long as you were very diligent about watering and feeding your plants. I don't have sufficient room to use the large multi-gallon containers recommended for some plants, but I can ensure that daily watering occurs. If a plant becomes root bound, does it matter, as long as it receives sufficient water and nutrients?
Thank you .......Bruce

Welcome to Garden Guides. Well, it all depends. Some plants won't do anything until they are root bound. Some will did if they get root bound. I suppose you could experiment and give it a try. Then you'll learn which ones don't mind the cramped quarters and which ones not to try again. Good luck.
