Let's Pot A Evergreen Tree!



Pot Evergreen Trees into garden pottery
Container Trees

Container cultivated trees, modest in size, yet still tall enough to look dramatic, can easily enhance an entryway, patio or balcony.  Many potted trees stage seasonal drama when they turn into blazing colors for Autumn, or flowering pink blossoms for Spring.  With proper care most trees in garden containers will prosper.

One tip to remember is when selecting the pot to plant the tree into make sure it’s large enough.  Any container will stunt a tree’s growth and limit the height it can achieve.  We recommend using a concrete planter, glazed planter or high fired clay planter.  Unless you plan on re-potting a terracotta container is two fragile and is meant to break down over time.  These types of garden planters would not be suitable for the trees listed below.

PICCA – spruce:
A long time favorite for container gardening, these evergreens are perfect for potting. Dwarf varieties are great choices.  A dwarf Alberta Spruce is covered in soft grayish green needles and grows very slowly so it will fit the container for many years.  You can pot these trees any time of year.  Once of the things we love is that they stay green all year.  If you use a large enough planter you can add colorful flowers around the base in Spring and Summer to add color.

PINUS – pine:
Very similar to the spruce this group of trees has hundreds of choices.  Bristlecone pine, Shore pine, Japanese Black pine, and Mugho pine are just a few.  With proper care these potted trees can last up to 10 years or more.  You can also plant them any time of year and even use them for living Christmas trees.  Each on listed above require a larger or extra large  planter and we again recommend concrete, poly resin, glazed or high fired clay.

Potting a tree is not hard. Just do you research on the variety and what size of pot you will need and you will be blessed with a tree that is forever green!
