Should Nematodes Be Applied In Containers

Question From: L. Jones - Chicago, Illinois, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, Can I, or should I, apply nematodes to the soil in my container pots that I plan to sit directly on the ground in my yard in a few weeks? Or will the Nematodes detect the introduction of the pots containing soil and seek out pests (if any exist in the pots) on their own?

A: I don't think they are necessary in containers. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
