Just checking,

I saw a glazed pot at Target and on the bottom there was a sticker
that said that pot was not for food use or something like that. Does
that mean I shouldn't grow vegetable plants in it? And if so why?
And...does this apply to all glazed pots? I'm asking because I'd like
to grow kitty grass for my cats in a glazed pot I already have (not
the one I saw at Target with the sticker on the bottom.

Stupid question over,


ps, thanks!

It probably means the glaze contains lead, or they don't know if the
glaze contains lead. Lead is not particularly mobile in soil, I would
not worry about it; I might mix some crushed limestone with the potting
soil to make sure the pH is not too low, but it's not like you were
drinking orange juice or lemonade stored in the pot.

Best regards,
