A weighty problem
Well, I finally found 50# bags of #2 grit and turface. When I saw how small the bags are and that I will be mixing this 1:1 in volume with bark I started worrying about whether my deck can handle the weight! I wanted to plant my Acer Shirasawanum 'Autumn Moon' in a large old copper laundry tub (24" dia x 18" high). I would love opinions as to whether that container is larger than it needs to be...assuming that I'm not into bonsai :)... and also some ways folks have filled space in large planters. Thank so much!
