Container growing Rainier cherries questions
I'm interested in growing some Rainier cherries in containers on top of a houseboat just north of Atlanta, GA. Can anyone suggest forums and web pages that would be good places to learn about them? I know almost nothing about them, but the time for planting is coming up soon is it not? I'd like to grow two trees in pots that are about 17" across by 16" deep. Will that be big enough? What sort of soil to get, and how best to fertilize? Where should I look to try to find plants? I heard that we should look for a plant that has already been pruned. Can anyone tell me if that's a significant consideration, and if so explain why? Any other info and advice people are willing to share would be very appreciated.
