Q.advice needed for burying pet ashes
Hi, I am looking for advice how to bury my dog’s ashes in a large pot. I would like a plant/tree that would thrive. I understand I need to mix the ashes with compost or soil to counter the acid but I don’t know how or what, and don’t know what plants are good for this. Also what size or pot. Thank you

Here is an answer from extension staff that says the amount of ashes probably wouldn't be enough to harm nearby plants. A small evergreen is always nice in a container, such as a dwarf boxwood or dwarf nandina. The pot should be no more than a few inches larger than the rootball of the plant. As the plant grows you may want to transplant into a larger pot.
