Rich, I always line mine with insulation especially the ones that hold J. maples.  I tell myself that it helps protect the roots for winter cold.

I bought a big concrete pot this weekend with a basket weave finish.

Good morning, Ray:

Do you prep the concrete?  What I mean to ask is:  since concrete is alkaline (pH>7), do you rinse it with vinegar or wash it with a sulfur slurry to make the interior surface more acidic?

I believe when people make the hypertufa toughs they rinse it with a vinegar solution, rinse, and let it cure for 3-4 weeks before planting.

Thanks in advance...Hostally,
