Hi there.

I have ordered braeburn apple grafted rootstock M9. I intend to plant it in a pot, it will arrive bareroot. so my question is should i plant it in a small tub? then replant the tree as it grows?

Thankyou  for the advice BobtheGardener,I  do feel guilty about cutting down an old apple tree, but i will just have to do it.

i have decided to get some  patio apple trees, maybe a pear tree also, not sure of cherries, i dont think they would do much-here in Manchester, uk.
