Hi, I have just taken delivery of 4 mini fruit trees (apple, pear, cherry and plum) all to be grown in pots and I was wondering what the best growing medium would be for each one. I hope you can help, thanks. Allan

A general potting soil would be best for them all. Potting soil is designed not to compact over time and to hold water well, which is important for trees in containers. Do not use top soil or garden soil, as these will compact in containers.
