Feelin’ Fruity: Fruit on Your Patio

At this point your patio is probably straining under the weight of the greens, potatoes and other garden delights you’ve foisted out into the sunshine; but what will you do for dessert?

Two words: container fruit.

You heard me right, you can grow a variety of fruits (trees and bushes) in simple containers. If you want to grow a fruit tree, consider getting a dwarf so the repotting and transport won’t need a crane. Also look for self-pollinating varieties if you only plan on having one. For a container orchard all you need is the following:

[fancy_list style=”check_list” variation=”green”]

  • Full sun
  • Drainage
  • Sufficient watering
  • Sufficient nutrients (in the form of compost or fertilizer)
  • Sufficient space (the roots need to be able to expand and will need to be repotted annually or so in larger containers to allow for root expansion)

[/fancy_list]

If you can provide all those you can enjoy tasty tasty fruit grown on your lanai.
