Nice find, crosseyedsheep. Remember folks, get to Lidl early or these fruit trees will be gone within a hour or two.

Can these trees be planted in a container?

Hi Marge,

As far as I know almost anything can be planted in a container, the size of the container just restricts how big the plant will finally grow to. So I would imagine the answer is yes. You would probably need a pretty big container for these if you want them to grow strong enough to support fruit though.

I'm sure some of the experts will have more to add.

I guess I am just thinking that I might plant it in a pot until the spring. That way I can take it indoors when the weather gets too cold - I don't have a green house.

No need to worry about that, they would be ready for planting outside.

Hello, I bought one of these trees as well, but it never did anything at all. I followed the instructions on the packet but it doesn't even seem to have rooted. It was planted in tree/shrub compost and watered fairly regularly. Is it likely that it was killed by the frost this winter (it was in a pot)?
