I'd like a tree at the front of the house but, because of water pipes I'm doubtful of planting it in the ground has anyone grown this in a large pot and was it succesful
I was sure I'd read somewhere that it was very successful in containers - I can't fine the article I was thinking of, but I have found this which indicates that it's suitable for containers http://hort.ifas.ufl.edu/database/documents/pdf/tree_fact_sheets/cercanc.pdf
It does do well in containers (at least so far for me) but prefers a free draining site in the ground. They have a habit of branch dieback during even mild winters until the reach a certain size, which is a bit boring and limits spring flowers. My ones in a pot is a lovely yellow at the moment while the one in the ground is still green.
thankyou both for the info. blairs what size pot have you got it in.
Not sure what size - it was one of those 3 for £10 ones from Asda - 40L?
More like 4L :P
