How can I grow acid loving plants when my soil is alkaline?
London, United Kingdom
I want to plant an acer in a semi-sunny kind of woodland spot but my soil is alkaline and I don't want to use a pot. Is it possible to bury a pot in the ground - I mean is there a problem that I haven't foreseen with this method? Also, as the bottom of the pot would have holes for drainage, would this affect the quality of the soil in the pot? If so, what would I need to do to maintain the soil's acidity? Thanks very much.
