A shade tree in a container
I'm a new member on Garden Web and came across wonderful posts such as Al's "Container Soils - Water Movement & Retention", I am thinking of growing a shade tree in a container and understand that the first thing I should do is pick the correct soil for that,
I have a few question that I hope to get your answers
I am thinking about albizia julibrissin, do you think that this is too big? other options? what is the size I can expect that tree to be if I have a container which is about 23 inch (a box shape container where each side 23')
What is your Ã¯Â¿Â½recipeÃ¯Â¿Â½ for that kind of soil?
I understand that drainage layer is not needed, but is there a need for covering the bottom of the container with a piece of nylon hosiery, weed cloth or other synthetic fabric to prevent soil from running out?
