Thanks everyone for your input on this topic, I must say it has proved very interesting. Spot on Bob with the soil recommendations, that's excatly what the guy at the G.C said, only he mentioned adding grit for drainge. He said he fed his on Growmore, but he also agreed with smflyman that c.m pellets are fine.

Thanks for replying Chicky and Fairygirl.

Chicky, I always thought it was the terracotta pots that 'baked' in the heat and that plastic (I do have a nice alnate resin one) kept plants cooler, now I am confused

Thanks everyone, just a couple of questions if I may, I have now purchased an Acer.P. Shaina, and was wondering what was the best site for it. Also I have two pots available terracotta verses plastic, which would be the better choice for this please. Many thanks

I would like to move my Hebe (Wiri Mist) and wondered if anyone could advise me how easy/dificult it might be, ie, are they deep/shallow rooted? do they take kindly to being moved? etc,

Check out your local G.C's websites, mine have them at half price this weekend !  I believe B and Q's are doing 25% off this w/end.

Thanks for replying Fleurisa and Smflyman, so to clariify S. are you saying I have to put the gravel and fabric at the bottom of the pot?  Should I start off in small pot (as some suggest) or just put it straight into a large one where it can stay long term?

Thanks for replies, do I have to do anything about the wormcasts or will they be ok to just scarify over?

Thankyou for your replies, could you please clarify what it meant by 'good drainage', I have never really understood this term.

I am interested in purchasing an Acer which I intend to grow in a pot. Could anyone please recommend an attractive red one that does not grow too big? Also, could you advise on the best position, soil and feed for it?
