Q.Suitable Pot Size For Repotting An Olive Tree Approximately 4.5ft High

Bob jennins added on July 1, 2020 | Answered

I bought a rather large olive tree which came in a 60cm diameter plastic pot which is rather shallow. I would like to repot but all I can find is a 53cm terracotta pot within my budget. Would this be ok? the depth of the new pot is approximately 60cm so it would have a lot more depth but slightly reduced diameter, would this be suitable? Thanks for reading

When you repot any plant or tree you will want to follow one important rule.

The container that you choose will need to be just a few inches larger on all sides. Each time that you repot, it will go into a container just slightly larger on all sides.
