what soil is needed for dwarf conifers & can ericaceous be used?

Asked from the GoYpedia conifers page



J.I. 2 which is loam based is a good growing medium for container grown conifers. After the first season you may need to add feed. You can do this by adding controlled release fertilizer worked into the top of the compost - or use a more organic fertilizer like blood, fish and bone on the surface of the compost.
