Root pruning containers - 15 gallon size
Would those who use hard plastic root pruning containers please comment on their use.
Also, I have the following questions:
Would a tree, for example, such as a Meyer lemon, grow better, or not as well as in a regular container?
How would a soil mix like the gritty 1-1-1, or the 5-1-1 work in these?
Would these mixes wash out through the sides?
Should the sides be lined with fiberglass window screen to keep soil in?
How often would such mixes need to be changed out?
Would the tree still need to be root pruned on a regular basis? If so, how often?
Could I repot from a three gallon immediately into a 15 gallon root pruner?
Root pruning containers do not have bottom drainage. Should one be drilled in the bottom?
My tree is a dwarf Meyer Lemon now in a three gallon in Florida. This 15 gallon root pruner would be the largest size I could ever go, and will be a permanent container. It will sit directly upon a bed of river rock pebbles.
TIA, and sorry for the many questions. My head is spinning! I have done many net searches but could not find the answers.
