Crimson Queen Maple soil questions
What is the best soil for a Crimson Queen Japanese maple to grow in a container (zone 7a, southwest)? I am going to be putting it into an 18" high unglazed clay pot. (It came in a 3.5 gal pot from nursery, roughly 1" caliper.)
Can anyone recommend a good soil mix FOR THIS CLIMATE, and this species of tree? Thanks. (Nursery tags say: rich, well drained soil; water: semi-moist; morning light. It will get slightly shaded morning light.)
Any other tips?
