Can you grow a tree in a pot?

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 08:34

As a short term...maybe 3 years....planting,  eucalyptus would look good in a pot.  Lovely juvenile blue foliage.  then start again.  Prune every year and a good moisture and nutrient supply during the growing season. Pinch out growing shoots 2 or 3 times too,during the summer 

Acers are excellent for pots.  As are conifers like Taxus and juniper varieties but need to be kept bushy and compact with annual pruning.

Good news fishy   No hugs from me cos I'm a blokey  bloke  But  pleased for you 

Dove, your dad sounds a real character...just imagined a moustachioed captain Biggles (there shown my age)  on a hospital trolley.  Seriously, I hope he's ok and found soon.

Had a home organised for my mum until hospital nurse  said she is aggressive and likely to hit people.  Im so annoyed because my,mum does not hit people.  Some of these hospital people are so,channelled they cannot see reality.   Will know tomorrow if I have  convinced the care home. 


What's the star in your garden right now
