What is the best compost mix to use when growing dwarf Victoria plum trees in containers?
Also is a 3O litre pot a suitable size to grow the above tree in?



Soil based John Innes No 3 would be best.
For a while yes, that size pot would do. You may need in future to scrape off the top few inches and replenish the compost though.

I would recommend eventually planting it in a pot three times, that size, though, New_comer. A 30 liter pot should hold it for a few years, though.
