And do you test the pH of the soil before potting?
Hi Mani, no need to test the PH for potted compost, in the UK I buy John Innes no2 for small pots and John Innes no3 for large pots. I mix this with horticultural grit, fine horticultural bark and a little peat.
You could say it's almost an Alpine mix tbh. Lots of air to circulate around the roots.
Not rocket science, as I said in the other posting, 'recreate a maples natural habitat'.
Oh! I have been using an ericaceous soil - have I been going wrong?
No that's fine as well Mani.
