should i mix peat with compost when planting from a pot?
To try and save my Berberis Thunbergii I have decided to plant it in my garden and was wondering if I should mix a little peat in with the compost as I have herd some people sware by it and others avoid it. Thanks to Bamboo and Elleme for your replies, I didn't find any signs of sawfly( thanfully) just some tiny bright green balls which I hope are some kind of food pellets put in when first potting. I think the loss of leaves may have been caused by the hot weather and it still being in a pot with holes in the bottom.
