Newbie with mini - some questions
I'm in central MD and was just gifted with a dark red mini from Lowe's with no info attached, other than that it was grown by Van Wingergen in Fletcher, NC. I know that it will do much better outdoors, but my question is where. The front of the house faces east so gets good sun all morning and into the early afternoon. I have a section of raised bed out front with fast-draining soil about 10 to 12 inches deep. Would that work or would I be better off planting in the back, which gets sun all afternoon with no shade. Unfortunately, the soil in the back is very heavy clay for the most part and will need lots of amending first. When would be the best time to move it outside?
