Q. Growing apple trees

Hi
I saw your ad on fcb regarding apple trees. This question might be silly but can they be grown in containers? I live on an estate with a small shallow garden. I’m thinking of making some large wooden containers.
Kind regards
Izzy

Dwarf varieties will be best suited for this application. There are some advanced root pruning methods for keeping standard trees small, but it will require quite a bit of knowledge at keeping Bonzai trees. If you were to pick a dwarf variety, then this can be relatively simple to keep in container, as they are well suited for this

Q. Very first time trying to grow anything at all, having trouble finding advice

So I’d like to start growing my own food. Over time I’d like to expand that to help others, but right now I don’t know how to start at all. I don’t know the first thing. I want to grow an apple tree in a pot, but have trouble finding any information on that that I can use. Nothing like a step by step walkthrough of exactly what I need and how exactly to do it. I’m completely new to this and don’t know the first thing about gardening or growing. Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

We have gardening articles on our website about growing apple trees in containers as well as growing your own food, but I think you need more detailed information such as you would get from your local Cooperative Extension group. Here is info in contacting them in your location:
