What's the best potting mix to grow a lime tree?

I want to plant a new lime tree in a large, plastic pot. What potting mix and additives, such as organic compot, should I use?

Hi Peter,

If a good potting mix is used such as Yates Professional Potting mix then you do not need to add anything at planting time as the mix already contains dynamic lifter and water storage crystals. If a blend is used that has no added fertiliser then you would have to add something at planting time. During Spring and Autumn fertiliser can be added taking care to use only the recommended rate for the size of the pot. At planting time apply some Yates Uplift Organic Plant Starter & Root Booster to help overcome transplant shock and promote new root growth.
