I've bought a large container that I want to use to plant a specimen tree. What would be the best compost to use for planting?
When you plant anything into a pot or container, it's important to remember that it becomes totally reliant on the growing medium in the pot and on any additional plant food or nutrients that you provide. A specimen tree needs the very best start, so choose a good quality compost that will support it's growth and be suitable for use in containers. It needs to be rich in nutrients and free draining but it also needs good water holding capacity so that it does not dry out too quickly in hot weather. Choose Westland Rose, Tree and Shrub Compost with added John Innes, it also contains the new West + ingredient to promote flowering and support strong and healthy root production which is important for container grown plants.
