Repotting Dwarf Meyer Lemon-Indoor and Outdoor
I've had a dwarf meyer lemon tree for about 5 years now in a container and it is time to upgrade the pot. I already bought a pot one size up, and am battling with what type of soil I should use.
I keep the plant indoors for about 8 months of the year, and outdoors for about 4 months.
Soil Recommendations? Can anyone give some recommendations on a good soil that I can purchase at Home Depot, or a Garden center already mixed in a reasonable ratio?
The seller suggests that I use a soil that is light and drains well, and if it has a lot of peat that I should mix cedar shavings in to help with drainage. Also, that I should use a soil specified for outdoor usage to ensure it does not have wetting agents.
Below I linked to a soil mix that I found on this forum, but was never sure if its ideal to go out and find all the ingredients, or if there is something that already exists since I only need a small amount to fill one pot.
My main questions are:
-Does a soil exist that I can purchase that is already mixed in a good ratio?
-If not, what do you recommend I use/mix?
-Anyone know of a good fertilizer? I currently use Miracle grow mir-acid that I mix into water every once in a while. I'm guessing there is something better out there.
