Fruit Trees In Pots

Image
We decided three years ago that we wanted a fig tree in our yard and I bought one for my wife. This year we picked the first decent figs at the beginning of February and they were heavenly.

I didn’t know it at the time because I only met the people from RJE Distributors recently and discovered that they are the suppliers of garden pots and other hardware to Goodies4Gardens.

Last Sunday we visited Goodies again to find out whether they had any more fruit trees in the nursery section. The man who runs the nursery took us to the trees they had and showed us grape vines, mangoes, peaches, apricots, and pomegranate trees.

I became interested in growing vegetables in pots when I came across amazing pins on Pinterest on the subject. Avid gardeners usually blog about their hobby or pastime and then promote them on Pinterest for the world to see. I’m looking at one of these articles as I’m typing and there’s a photo of a big plastic pot with about twenty carrots growing in it. The photo also shows the grower’s hand holding ten healthy looking carrots next to the plastic flower pot. The article reads, “Container Gardening for Vegetables.”

It would have been wiser if I did some reading on the subject of growing my plants in containers like plastic pots before I started. Already, as I’m reading the article, I can see where things went wrong fo…
