Question for Al, container mixture recipe
I'm putting my trees in bigger pots this weekend, I have 55gal drum that I'll cut down to about 30gal.
I was able to find 100% pine bark mulch, which is very small nuggets with shredded material. I have coarse perlite in lieu of granite , I have read that's OK and a weight saver. I will have Turface or another name brand but still the baked clay product. The mixture will 1-1-1.
I figure each container will take about 7-9 cubic feet of mixture.
How much dolomitic lime do I add to each container?
How much 3-1-2 fertilizer do I add to each container?
Finally, when I asked for 3-1-2 fertilizer they said the closest they had was 3-1-5. They said to find out the brand name of the 3-1-2 as it's probably a proprietary mixture.
Can you tell me the brand name of your 3-1-2 or will 3-1-5 be OK.
