Anonymous added on May 17, 2014 | Answered

I would like to plant some type of evergreen in a pot for our front porch. What is the best type of evergreen tree for this job? It will be on a covered front porch. Also, will I ever need to repot the tree? What is the best form of soil to use?

Boxwoods are popular for this. They grow slowly so do not need to be repotted often. They will at some time need to be repotted, but it could take several years. Regular potting soil is best.
