fruit trees in raised beds?
Yes I know that raised beds are container gardening; however since my question IS about growing fruit trees, I figured this would be the best forum to post this thread.
I'd like to grow dwarf fruit trees in raised beds. Is this possible? If so, how big would the raised bed need to be (with length, width, and depth).
Below are a list of varieties of fruit trees I'd be interested in growing:
*Persimmon (Japanese variety)
*Pomegranate (not sure on this one)
Please note that I don't plan to grow all of these types of fruit trees all at once. Also, if possible I'd like to get self-pollinating varieties of fruit trees. It would just make things simpler.
Most trees according to the sites I've found, they're shipped as 'bare roots'. What does this mean?
Also, typically how old are fruit trees when they're shipped, and how long will it take the tree to bare fruit once it's planted?
