I have just bought a very large pot 86cm in diameter and nearly as tall (50% fibre, 50% clay so frost proof). Can you recommend a large tree that would survive well if kept in an open area of the garden, not too windy south/East facing.
Hi carmenandjohn. Large Japanese Acers are happy to grow in pots. You could grow a fruit tree or a columnar Yew such as Standishii.
What do you mean by large?
WAKE UP FG! PAY ATTENTION!
86CMS DIAMETER AND HALF AS MUCH IN DEPTH.
The tree PF...the tree!
OH, THE TREE.
I DO WISH THAT PEOPLE WOULD BE CLEARER. MR MUSCLE IS FOREVER SAYING THINGS LIKE "HE GAVE IT TO THEM" AND GETS ALL HUFFY WHEN I ASK "WHO IS HE, WHAT IS IT WHO ARE THEY?"
A LARGE TREE IS A LARGE TREE, I SUPPOSE.
I did mean the tree....
Some people would think a fifteen foot rowan was big, but they also might mean a Scot's pine at 100 feet....
In the absence of the OP replying - one of the birches would be nice I think
or a rowan
An olive tree if you are in the south?
There's one of those people staying here at the moment PF. I patiently explain over and over that I can't see the pictures in her head!! It seems that they're all called Margaret too!
An amelanchier would be lovely or a Eucryphia.
Depends if you want blossom, fruit or for it to be evergreen.
