Growing a Japanese cherry tree in a large pot:?

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 22:07

Does anyone have experience of this? I'd like one of the tall but narrow columnar japanese cherries but not sure whether it would thrive in a pot?

Hi, Just to add that I have been eating mange tout for a week or two now and I dug up my first baby new potatos today - delicious. Good luck!

First early potatos

Once your potato plants flower, is it better to dig all the first earlies up and store the potatos inside or can I leave the potatos and plants in the ground and dig them up as I need them? If I want the ground to grow something else in, is it OK to store them? How long will they store for?

I planted some autumn bliss last autumn but they are in the wrong place so I need to move them sometime. Can I do it now, or should I wait until after they have fruited in the autumn/winter. They have started to produce new growth this spring already.

The ones outside will always grow slower just because it is colder outside, but in the end they will catch up with the others. Don't worry about the green moss on the soil, is it possible you've been watering too much? or it may be because they have been covered with fleece the air is a bit stagnant. Do you just cover them with fleece at night or are they covered all the time? You might want to let them have some fresh air! Hope that helps

Storage of potatos in garage or in the ground?
