Sometimes, you may be short of space for trees on the allotment. This is when need to plant things in pots. When planting fruit trees in pots, try to get dwarf varieties as they will survive best. Plant as you would with any other potted plant, making sure you take care if it is heavy. You should also check that you have a large pot.

Once your tree is planted, it still requires care. Make sure it is kept well watered and fed, and if extremely necessary, repot, taking care as it will be heavy.

Also, cut back the tree in around march if it gets too large.

When planting in pots, make sure they are sheltered as pots are fairly likely to blow over. This could cause injury and damage. As well, you should check the tree has good support – e.g a bamboo cane.
