A few questions about container growing
Hi, I just bought a JM "Dancing Peacock" and plan on growing it in a container for at least a few years before planting in the ground. It is about 48" tall right now.
I have never grown a tree in a pot before so I would appreciate any advice you can give me. It is currently potted in 3 gallon plastic pot in bark and potting soil mix. Is this OK or should I do something different?
I have also read that I should put the pot in the garage over the winter (we have harsh winters in N. Utah). My garage stays about 40 degrees throughout most of the winter months, would this be a suitable place to store it for the winter? Also, do you water at all during the winter or let it go completely dry?
Thanks for any advice you can give me and I would love to see pictures of a mature Dancing Peacock if anyone has one.
Thanks a bunch!
