It takes a LOT of potting soil to fill one of these suckers. I mixed some sand into the soil for the bottom third to make sure it didn't get boggy, then in it went.
I kept going back and forth about what to do with the designer twig. I thought I'd move it to where I dug out the hebe stump, but I realised that in the winter it doesn't get any direct sun. That's not a good thing for citrus, which ripens up their fruit in the winter! So I finally decided it needed a bigger pot. Which meant going for the full half wine barrel!
It does look a lot happier in its new home. It wasn't actually very root-bound in the old pot which means it will be years before it fills out this pot. And the bloody thing is so heavy, it's not going anywhere. In maybe 3 or 4 years I'll pull it out just to trim the roots and the leaves to keep it to a small size.
I can't wait until it gets its next flush of flowers, this is definitely the year for it to fruit!
