Protect in place or pot and move?
I have decided I want to grow mango and despite all the predictions of global warming I am still getting 1-5 sub freezing nights a year.
Weighing the pros and cons of planting the mangoes in ground and having a structure I can quickly protect them with or put them in 30 gallon pots and on the cold nights and have a way to tilt them and wheel them in to the garage. I have a tractor with a FEL so lifting them wont be an issue.
I have settled (I think) on Carrie and Pickering. Both are dwarfs and I will keep them under 10 feet tall.
For a structure I was considering something more substantial than fabric, perhaps 4 sided structure held together by hinges with permanent anchors in the ground to tie it down to? Something that could go up in 30 minutes would be nice.
