daphne odora in container
I just found a good deal on a 3 gallon daphne odora. It will be in a container since I don't have room for it in the ground. I'm also being cautious since these types of plants are so temperamental and I want to make sure it has good drainage. The issue is that it is balled and burlaped in heavy clay. It is my understanding, from attending numerous garden seminars, that the clay should be removed as best as possible before planting (whether in a container or not). I want to disturb the roots as little as possible and simply plant it in a good potting soil. Does this sound like the right thing to do? Thank you!
