Gritty Mix Questions for Al
Hi Al, I've been studying your gritty mix for a long time and finally starting making it now. During the process, I have several questions still not sure about. I'd extremely appreciate it if you could help me out.
1. Just to confirm, the best size for the pine barks is between 1/4" to 1/8"; for granite grit is the1/8".
2. I live in a area with very hot summer (highs in the 100s), so what do you think is the lowest percentage of granite I can use on the mix?
3. I use the gritty mix for mostly tropical fruit trees. I read from your previous posts that for trees with leaves, I can't barefoot it when repot. My concern is if the peat based soil around the roots will cause disparity in the new container in terms of water retention. What is your advice on barerooting oe not for tropical fruit trees.
