1) Grow where plants can get full day direct sun
2) Use fruit crates as containers or 14 inch diameter pot for one plant
3) Mix bhall with compost 3:2 ratio and use it as growing medium

Search the forum, you will get all your answers...

You should start preparing your soil now... get the fruit crates, arrange them in such a way that all get full day sun... fill the crates with soil mix and keep them moist so weeds will grow and you could eliminate them before planting...
