Put Fruits & Berries in Garden Planters


Nothing is better than the fresh, sweet flavor of home-grown fruit and berries.  Even though not all fruit can grow well in the space of a garden planter, many do really well.

When it comes to selecting the size of planter to use, we go back to the old saying, the bigger planter the better.  You need room for the root system to be able to prevent the plant from becoming root bound.  Eventually all fruit trees or berry bushes will need to be transplanted into the ground.


Many fruit trees are naturally small and perfect for a garden planter.  Dwarf varieties are your best bet. Now is the time to select the container.  You pretty much can go with any material of flowerpots.  Clay, Ceramic, Concrete, Glazed, Lightweight Poly Resin or High Fired Clay will all work.  Like we already said, make sure they are large enough and have drain holes.  You do not want the plants roots to sit in standing water.  Place the pots where they will be located before planting because of the weight.


For the most successful crop, take care to give your potted plants sufficient water and fertilizer.  Keep soil in the clay garden pots moist and never let it dry out completely.   Apply a fertilizer as directed.  With exceptions, most kinds of fruit and berries need at least 6 hrs of sunshine a day to set, ripen and sweeten the crop.

Plant bare root blueberries, strawberries, dwarf citrus like apple, pear, lemon, peach & apricot.  All work really well in garden containers, ceramic garden pottery and garden clay pots.
