Thanks for  the helpful replies,the pot is a 16"deep and16"in diameter which I feel

is OK.I used Murphys multi-purpose compost  with a small handful of bone-meal .Feed-wise before covering its feet added some potash under the broken tiles which I used for this purpose.The plant in question looking at my records has been fed five times with tomerite ,hope this helps.
