New, with questions.
New to Japanese Maples, that is.
I've got 9 of them headed my way from Park's Wholesale's Clearance Sale.
3 x Acer palmatum var. dissectum 'Orangeola'
3 x Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'
3 x Acer palmatum var. dissectum 'Crimson Queen'
They're all listed as 1-gallon plants, so I figure I'll be growing them on in containers for a while before installing them. I'll probably use a variation of 'Al's Mix' from the Container Gardening Forum. It's mostly pine bark fines, with added peat and perlite.
Anything special I should know to successfully grow these things on?
Thanks in advance.
