Container apple tree, soil and fertilizer question.

Post by MartinEvereste » Sat Feb 08, 2020 5:49 am

Hello, my first post here.
I'm planning on planting a M9 Red Windsor in a pot. Pot size is about 115L. 65cm diameter at top.
Anywho, my question is about soil. Is it best not to just use compost on its own? Read something about mixing soil with John Innes no3. What ratio soil to compost should I use? Also, is grit a good idea?
Something I saw said to mix in a granular fertilizer. What sort of thing should I use and how much?

Thank you!
