Moso Planting - A few questions
I will be planting some Moso clumps that I ordered online and I wanted to know if anyone could answer a few questions.
The plants are fairly small-- I think 1 gallon pot size. I will be planting them in a greenbelt area about 75 feet from a small creek. The soil stays fairly moist throughout the year.
-How much trouble will the Moso have if there is already wild grass and weeds around the planting area?
-The area has some wild rabbits and birds around. Should I put a wire mesh around the plants to protect them while they are small?
-Will the Moso have any problems with the root structure of a nearby tree? (Willow, approximately 8 feet away)
-What is the best type of mulch to put around the plants?
-Any specific recommendations for potting soil type and plant food?
Thanks, I will probably put up pictures when I get the plants.
