Hi there,

I have a gravel yard, and want to plant some fruit trees, would it be possible to grow fruit trees in containers, deep ones, anybody any experience with that?
How deep go the roots, etc etx,

Thanks

no, there are no apples trees nearby; i live in phibsboro, so it's not the most green of areas.
