$40 6 foot Fruit Trees @ Home Depot!

  • I was buying dimmable LED lights at Home Depot in Gowanus and I noticed them unloading six foot fruit trees. Cheaper than they had last year. I am thinking of buying some for the new rockaway community garden on 91st, they will produce fruit this year, most are dwarf varieties. My favorite is peach, but they also had cherries, apples, and pears!

  • YAYY!! can you keep them in pots? if so, how large of a pot do we need to keep these guys healthy and producing? do you need to worry about pollination?

  • Snags, 20-30 gallon pot will do the trick for a couple years. No hand pollination needed if they are outdoors, bumble bees will do that for you =)


    Shacky try to get dwarfs if possible, they tend to be space hogs in our little city gardens.

  • Definitely getting dwarfs.  You need a 20 - 30 gallon for dwarfs?  Do you use potting soil?  What kind of care does they require?

  • Oh and bLowes has rasperry, blueberry, grapes, and blackberries for $10!


    Onefin, Last year I bought a grove of dwarf fruit trees for my townhouse roof, they survived the winter!

    Shacky no special care for potted trees in the short term (first few years) just get a pot with good drainage, great soil, and fertilize with organics in the early spring. long term you will need to transplant to a slightly larger pot.
