Potted Peach Tree



 57-Potted-Peach-Trees


At Arizona Pottery we have always loved sharing tips on all the different types of fruits and vegetables you can grow is garden containers.  Today we would like to offer a few tips on potted peaches.

As with any potted fruit tree there are many things to consider.  Whether to buy a bare root tree or a potted tree, the right kind of tree, the pot to plant the tree into, fertilizer and weather conditions etc.  We think you get the idea here.  Since we donít have enough space to cover every thing to consider we thought we would hit a few highlights.

First, decide what type of peach tree you want.  Remember when looking to pot a tree you need to consider a dwarf style.  These will grow to a height of 6 feet and still produce full size fruit.  This way they wonít outgrow your garden pot and need repotting.

When selecting a tree we love the lightweight poly resin planters that we sell. They come in huge sizes, 32 colors and are easy to move.  Place the pot you select where you want to keep it.  Fill the bottom of the container with gravel for good drainage.  Then add loamy compost soil half way up the side.  Place the new tree into the planter and fill in with top soil.

Make sure you place the garden container in a spot that gets full sun with protection from cold winds.  You will need approximately 7 or more hours of sun a day.  We think a potted tree that is started at a local nursery is the easy way to go. Then all you need to do is take it home and repot it into a decorative garden planter that matches your home and landscape décor.

Lastly, when it comes to taking the best care of your potted peach tree we suggest googling the best way to prune and fertilize the tree.  There is no point in making this kind of investment of time and money if you donít take care of all the little details. 

How many folks do you know that have a potted peach tree in their yard or patio area?  Well you can be the first by following the above easy directions.

Potted Pomegranate Trees



 8544-Potted-Pomegranate-

We love the see the different fruits and veggies that can be grown in garden containers.  This post is about a potted Pomegranate tree.  They are easy to grow, cold hardy and beautiful along with tasty.  Check it out.

Why do we say growing a potted pomegranate tree is easy. Well they have shallow roots compared to other fruit trees and that makes them easy to pot in a garden planter.  Each plant has lovely green leaves and delicate bell shaped flowers that are stunning in a bold bright red color.  When they bear fruit they look like large red apples with a hard shell that hide the juicy sweet seeds inside that are edible.

So here are a few tips that should encourage you give this lovely plant a chance.  Choose a sunny location.  The more sun this plant receives the better your chances are of bearing fruit.  If for some reason you can only place the pot in a partial shade location it will still bloom but have less fruit.

Soil for potted pomegranate trees should be loamy and loose.  Make sure to use a potting soil for fruit trees for the best results.  During the growing period the water requirement is medium to high.  So we recommend watering regularly and deeply.  Of course don't water log it.

It is best to fertilize regularly to help it achieve the best growing and blooming results.  Pruning will be necessary to encourage flowering and fruit so remove weak, or dead branches.  You shouldn't have an issue with disease but if you do treat it right away.

The last thing to consider is repotting.  If your pomegranate tree becomes root bound wait till there are no flowers or fruit on the tree and move it into a larger planter.  If moving it into the garage during winter is your plan then consider using a light weight poly resin garden planter.  Otherwise concrete, terra cotta, ceramic or fiberglass planters will work.  Just make sure the tree's roots always have some room to grow.

Well hope these tips help.  If you would like to share your experience we would love to hear from you.  Good Luck!

Potted Madagascar Dragon Tree




 8453-Potted-Madagascar-D

With it's long name and unusual look the Madagascar Dragon Tree is super easy to care for, uses little light and water and can take a bit of abuse.  We would love you to pot one up and see how happy it will make you.

The Madagascar Dragon Tree looks like a palm tree.  With it's long narrow leaves that look spiky it looks just like a palm and with the dark green and purple edges it looks lovely and colorful.  These potted trees can grow up to 18" in length along a woody cane base, and they can grow to a average height of 8 feet.

When selecting a pot for planting, remember that they do well when root bound.  This means you still want to select a planter that meets your decorating needs along with a size that gives your plant some room to grow.  Just remember that you are in no rush to re-pot it once it becomes root bound.

Dragon trees like partial shade.  Place the pot by a window but if it starts to get a burned look to the leaves it is getting too much light.  If the leaves start to fade in color you are not getting enough light.
Water randomly.  Once dry water it good about 1/2" inch of the pot.   Let it dry out again before watering.  They don't  like cold temps or hot above 80 degree tempts so watch that if possible.

If potting this tree and placing indoors they will tolerate most indoor temps and humidity.  Misting once in a bit will help.  Nothing special is needed for soil care.   Just use a well draining potting soil.  Make sure your planter has drain holes and add rocks to the bottom of the pot for better drainage.

As we said earlier these are easy and beautiful plants to pot up.  Give it a go and let us know how you did.
