I understand. I assumed you were thinking I used a bag mix but I use native sandy loam soil with additional fine woody material. I would think using a container mix is last resort for this reason. Thank you for the clarification

My Meyer lemon is in a 35 gallon thatís 40%pine park 40% promix (organic fruit and veg) 10% fresh vermicompost 10% bokashi waste (mostly fermented fruit peels, chicken carcasses). I got 130 lemons over a 14 month period. Only issue is u need to repot/root prune or productivity drops. I add fresh clover/alfalfa and more fermented stuff to the top and the worms, millipedes and wood lice break it all down.
