Patio Orchard Help

greenthumbzdudeDecember 3, 2010


I want to get some dwarf,self pollinating fruit trees (sweet cherry and peach) from stark brothers next spring. I would like to grow them in containers. What type of container, soil, and fertilizer should I use? I want to keep them on my patio year round,do I need to protect them in the winter? If so, how do I do that?
