gaultheria procumbens soil

another quick q:
I want these to stay healthy until spring. aftger they have been hardened off, they'll be planted in my 'woodland plant' area. They are pot bound in typical peaty soil mix.
You may know they are a woodland creeper, usually growing in moist highly organic part shade acid soil.
Would you recommend 5/1/1 mix?
MG half rate 2 x wk or 1 x wk?

I'm not sure where you have them, but they should be sleeping in the cold right now. Teaberry is VERY hardy. Are they outdoors or in your garage? Indoors?


RE: gaultheria procumbens soil

Hi Al,
I think I answered this on the other thread I started.
It was a little long, so I won't write it all again. If you can't find it or don't get to it, never mind. They are going into gritty soil and staying on the coolest windowsill I can find.
