All my woody long term planting go into a soil others have named 'The Gritty Mix". It always remains well-aerated from top to bottom (supports little or no perched water) and provides a home conducive to exceptional root health. A primary tenet of container gardening is, "A healthy plant is impossible w/o a healthy root system".
