When you say 'small terracotta pots' what size are you talking about  There's not many things that will be happy in a small pot for 'a good few years'.

Yes - I'd use a loam-based compost and make sure you leave the top of the corm just proud of the compost.

You can mix some vermiculite in with your compost, instead of grit, if that's easier for you to get

How big is the pot - I imagine that after three years it will be pretty full of roots and this will stop it absorbing water - I think that it needs potting on to a bigger pot with fresh compost which will absorb and hold water.

You can't do better than these http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/pages/About-Us.html I've had great quality plants, beautifully packaged and delivered exactly on time as arranged. 

Stephen Read has been really helpful when I've emailed him for advice and he picked out exactly the right tree for me to espalier myself.

The website is also a fount of knowledge and advice and a huge range of select plants.

I have no connection with them other than as a very satisfied customer.
