What compost to plant Holly in?
I've just got this Holly plant. It's about 2ft or 3ft but it's stick-like, as in not thick and bushy yet. I want to plant it in a container permanently but I'm unsure which compost would be best.
I've read they like acid soil but I'm not sure if using ericacious compost alone is best. I don't want to have to change the compost regularly and disturb the plant. Would John Innes No3 be better? Or a mix of both?
Also, is there anything I could plant with it until it gets bigger? The pot will look a bit empty but I don't want to add something that could harm this Holly or stunt it's growth.
