Plastic container pots for fruit trees
Hi, I am new to this site and forum, so bear with me! I have a large terrace and this spring have introduced several fruit trees, among them a fig and a persimmon, both already fairly tall (6 ft or more) spindly trees. I want to transplant them but all I have are large plastic pots (meant for terrace plants). Terracotta pots of the same size would be hugely expensive and quite difficult in terms of transport (I don't drive), so my question: is the plastic going to negatively affect the health of the fruit tree, or the fruit (should there be any) in any way? Is terracotta a better choice? Thanks very much for any advice.
