If it is to live in the pot for years, then it needs more than potting compost. Asking advice at the garden centre is a very good idea.

Not for years grandma , if I can get it back in the ground once the structure work is done (before the flowering )I will , otherwise I shall wait until dormant again.

I certainly agree that they are better off in the ground, providing the slugs don't get them before they get a chance to start into growth. Short term, I'd have thought the planting medium isn't that important and compost would be fine.

Thanks grandma , the slugs don't seem to bother those , too busy with the lupins I think I shall plot where it is moving to so I'm ready once OH gets a chance to do his bit (work and weather dependent)
