Gritty Mix late-comer
Hi, folks - I'm finally getting everything together to give the 5:1:1 mix a try and have a couple of questions. I found everything I need, but am confused about the last two ingredients of the recipe....Is it CRF OR Micro-nutrient poweder or CRF AND Micro-nutrient powder?
I got Osmocote 19-6-12 Outdoor/Indoor (pink cap) CRF and also bought Jobe's Organics All Purpose Fertilizer that would give it an additional 4.0% of NPK plus Calcium, Magnesium and Sulfur. It also has a long list of words I can't even pronounce and I assume those are the Micro-nutrients.
I bought an Eastern Redbud that is already over 5 feet tall and I'm in hopes that by planting in a container I can keep it as a smaller tree due to space constraints. Any chance of success? I've read the discussion on re-potting rather than potting up, so am wondering how bit a container I will need.
I've been a lurker mostly on Gardenweb and I just want to thank all of knowledgeable people who are so willing to share.
