An Answer to A Burning Question

One of my favorite new blogs, North Coast Gardening, is chock full of great ideas and advice. Gen, the person in charge over there, has a degree in horticulture and works as a professional landscape designer and garden coach. In a recent email convo with her, I popped a question, and she just posted a very informative answer over at her blog. Gen is starting a question and answer feature, so if you ever wanted to ask a gardening expert a question, now is the time to ask!

Here is my question:

Why is it better to transplant a plant into a series of progressively larger pots? I’ve seen that recommended in books, but they never say why it’s better than a small plant potted in a big pot (other than the obvious point that a tiny plant in a huge pot would look ridiculous).

And here is Gen’s answer.
