Container gardeners (and fruit lovers) rejoice! You don't need a big yard to grow delicious apples, plums or pears. With the right fruit, the right pot, the right compost and the right care, you can create your own little fruit orchard right on your balcony or terrace. - or if you have lots of black walnut trees in your yard!

Growing Fruit In Pots


This little citrus tree was given to me by one of my nurseries to "test drive" through the winter. I planted it up with some 'Citrus' Violas and placed it at one of my client's homes in a sunny, exposed area. *fingers crossed* Let's hope it truly is hardy to Zone 6 (we're in Zone 7B here in Georgia). We'll continue to feed it some of @Authentic Haven Natural Brew through the winter.

Loquat and other citrus trees: use an organic insecticidal soap or neem oil to manage pests, especially if moved indoors for winter. Water about 1/2 gallon per week, depending upon the time of year and exposure of your containers. Pruning three times a year (April, June, September) will increase branch structure, boost fruit production, and create a nice looking tree.

    Does anyone know where these planters can be found?

If there is a possibility that a citrus tree will be transplanted into the landscape or into a larger container - don't choose a pot like this one, which has a narrow opening. Your may need to smash the pot first in order to get the plant out.

Container grown lemon tree: if there is a possibility that the plant may need to be transplanted, don't choose a pot with a narrow opening like this one. Once the tree matures, it will be almost impossible to get the tree out of the container, without smashing the pot first.
