Help a newbie with newly potted hemlock?
I am new to this forum but have been lurking and reading avidly for a while. A wonderful resource for a new gardener like myself.
I wanted an evergreen container for my front porch, so just two days ago, I repotted a Sargent's weeping hemlock that I'd bought from a nursery. I put it in Al's gritty mix in a large pot along with some Japanese Spurge and Creeping Jenny. It's in total shade, but it's been warm for here (in the mid-80s) for the last week or so.
So...I've watered my new planting every day but am wondering if and when I should fertilize it? (I didn't add any slow-release fertilizer to my gritty mix and I have Foliage Pro 9-3-6 that I was hoping to use.). But I'd read somewhere not to fertilize a repotted tree for a while, so I haven't.
Does anyone know when I should fertilize this new planting? If so, your input would be most welcome. Thank you much!
