Deciduous tree in container? In zone 10?
I'm from Chicago, and I really miss nature up there. I loved the seasons and everything that it brought, yes I love snow and the cold.
I now live in Miami. Nothing much to say about Miami other than any place in Florida out of Miami is probably better in many aspects.
My question is, I'm currently living in an apartment with two balconies, the main balcony is actually sort of a porch which serves as the main entrance to the apartment and is 8x16 ft. I would love to plant a deciduous (temperate climate) tree but I seem to have everything stacked against me. I live in zone 10 and my "balcony/porch" garden faces north, although I don't get morning sun, I do receive a lot of sunshine from 4pm on out.
What could work for me? The tree will have to be planted in a large container (when it get's larger). I would love to try the Japanese maple but I would love to have some guidance that would probably make me make a better choice.
Thanks in advance!
