Another question about gritty mix

krismast(6 S.E. PA)May 23, 2013

Hi everyone! I started some Poncirus trifoliata seeds in gritty mix that have since sprouted. I was hopping to grow these in containers for a few years before they are big enough and then I would plant them in the ground outside. It just occurred to me that you probably can't plant a rootball of gritty mix in the ground? Or can you? Should I put these seedlings in something else if my plan is to eventually out them in the ground?

When you take your plant out of the gritty mix you will be able to just shake it off. I would continue in the gritty mix until ready to put in the ground. Al

So would it be more like planting a bare root tree then?

Hi Kristopher!

You are correct!

You will have a nice rootball by then, so there will be no problem.

Just plant like any other barefoot plant in the ground!

Good luck!
