Planting Silver Maple in pot ... big mistake?
Hello, I am very new to the whole gardening thing, and I need a bit of help. I wanted to find a tree to grow in a pot for my preschool, and when I went to the local OSH to find a tree, the employee was not very helpful and I unwittingly bought a silver maple that I later learned grows at a very fast rate.
Would trying to grow this maple in a large pot be a big mistake? Could I try to prune its roots here and there or would it grow too fast? I've tried to look on the internet, but so far I've not seen any instance of someone planting this kind of tree in a container.
