Just trying to get an idea of what you're doing in terms of space. Here's what I mean: I have a nice sized garden, but caging/netting plants within my beds can be a bit of a PITA, since I intensively plant them with companions. So for next year, I was thinking of planting in-ground as my main "crop" then planting and bagging pots for seed. Does anyone else do that? It's just easier to bag pots and I don't companion plant them.
Is there any drawback to using potted plants as my seed source instead of in-ground? In the past, I have bagged pots and bagged individual flowers/fruits on in-ground plants (with limited success).
So essentially, I would have a copy of each plant for which I want seed in a pot...
