Miniature apple

I have a miniature apple tree in a large tub, do I need to put feet under the tub?

    Always a good idea Caz8 as the drainage holes can get blocked if the tub is on the ground.  Trees also have a tendency to send roots down through the drainage holes.  If the tub is kept slightly clear of the ground then roots will 'air prune' themselves and not do that.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
