Jacko, my big pots take so long to water that it's coming out the bottom of the pot, so gave mine some lovely well rotted horse poo and watered that in, and then I will add more later on before winter gets a full grip on us, and hope they put out some decent new cain's next year :lol:

thats the trouble with pots.as long as you give them a good soaking when you water them they should be ok.if the pots are drying out quickly it could be full of roots and rhizomes already or be in a windy exposed location that dries the pot out quick.your vivax will take off now its in the ground.i predict 13ft to 14ft next season for you :D

in the summer I watered my pots everyday and gave them a good soak, the boo's romped all season.

Watered with miracle grow every 2 weeks or so

Not watering so much now, they have a bark mulch and under the mulch they feel damp.

My small one which has the most yellowing prob needs a feed but is it too late now?

give it a little feed of something that is not high in nitrogen this time of year hopefully that will help.
