I know they "don't do well in the Ozarks" but I ordered a dwarf Robada apricot tree from Starks that will be delivered in mid March bareroot.
We've gone two years in a row without a late freeze so now I figure it will never happen again with my luck.
The plan is to keep it in a large container on my patio and wheel it back against the south side of my house under the balcony if (when) we get late frosts in the spring. Hopefully I'll at least get a few apricots before I manage to kill it somehow.
I've been reading about "Al's Gritty Mix" in the container forum and considering that to pot it in if I can find the ingredients and if it's not terribly expensive. Has anyone ever tried that or had good luck with trees in containers with another soil/soilless mix? I may have wasted my money ordering it but just wanted to try.
