New Dwarf Nectarine Tree - Questions
Hi all! I received my new leprechaun dwarf nectarine tree from Willis Orchards today! Just a couple of questions for you experts, as this is my very first fruit tree.
The tree is about 4 feet tall, grafted at 18 inches and is currently a naked root ball waiting for planting. I'm in zone 6a and plan on planting it into a large pot.
How large of a pot should I put my tree in? Again, I am in zone 6a- our temperatures rarely fall below 0F. Should I pot the tree and leave it outside all winter? I know fruit trees require chilling hours, I'm just unsure of what is best for this particular tree.
