an extra year in pots?
I'd be very interested in your thoughts on how long to keep all sorts of trees in pots versus how soon to set them out, but currently I'm thinking about 2-3' Asian persimmon whips that were grafted this spring. I just purchased and received three. I expect they'd have to grow better in pots next year where I could keep them better watered and better weeded, but they have to go in the ground at some point and maybe that transition would be easier the younger they are? Is it almost always best to keep trees in pots as long as possible, so long as I have a big enough pot that I can still move? Are there factors that play into the answer to this question that I'm maybe not considering?
