I 've made so much with elderflowers and berries this year I thought I'd like an elder tree, I found one a metre tall at the local charity farm for £5, I haven't got a permanent spot for it at the mo, how long could I keep it in a large pot and will it flower? Thanks in advance for answers

my children had a butterfly net set last year with caterpillars that they loved watching, then they saw them hatch and fly off in the garden, we didn't,t get round to ordering replacements this year, now my daughter has just found a cabbage white caterpiller, and wants to keep it in the habitat net with sugared water and leaves, I've read it won't be a butterfly til next spring, is this cruel or feasible ? Any advice welcome thankyou
