acer palmatum ( japanese}

United Kingdom Gb

what soil type should I use to repot this beautiful shrub?



I was advised to use a mixture of garden soil and multi-purpose compost. It was happy in that until I had to plant it into the border in a more sheltered place - it didn't like the wind! So now it's in ordinary garden soil.
