Soil for potted sapodilla
« on: July 06, 2019, 10:07:17 PM »
I just bought at 2 foot, grafted sapidilla silas woods.  I have a big pot already to plant it.  Question, what kind of soil would you use?  Any amendments?  Thanks

If your tree is a smaller 2 foot tall grafted tree, I wouldnít immediately up pot it to a very big pot. Itís best to gradually step up the pot size. Select the next pot size up and plant it in that. Something an inch or two wider and taller would be perfect. Sapodillas arenít too picky about the soil as long as itís good draining.

As for potting soil, if your looking for something off the shelf, a 50/50 mixture of Fox Farm and Happy Frog works excellent. You can easily add your own amendments to a cheaper potting mix but this mix has plenty of all the good stuff to support a great canopy and root development.
