    The good thing about growing in containers is that I can control the NPK levels fairly easy. I spray compost tea on all my plant every other day. I add blood meal along with other ingredients in my tea to counter any N loss from the leaf mulch. I watch the leaf color to know what nutrients the plants? might lack. Hope this helps.
