Pot growing Mahonia x media "charity"?
I have a fairly small garden and my main objective is to make it as bee and wildlife friendly as possible. I know that Mahonias are great sources of early nectar for bees and would love to grow one for that reason alone (not actually a huge lover of it otherwise, though the scent and evergreen structure are valuable ). However due to lack of a suitable space for it I was wondering whether it might be possible to grow one in a large pot.
I know that they don't really need pruning but would pruning actually harm it and when/how would I prune? Thanks!
