What is a Patio Tree?
A patio tree is a tree that provides beauty and shade over a patio area. Patio trees are rooted in the ground, but can also be grown in a pot or bucket. They can be placed next to a patio or can be set within the patio itself.
Do Patio Trees Produce Fruit?
YES! Patio fruit trees will bear fruit with the appropriate care and growing conditions. To ensure the fruit is produced - choose fruit tree varieties appropriate for your planting zone, give them plenty of sunlight, water, and nutrients. You'll have fruit in no time! Some of the most popular patio fruit tree fruits include apples, blueberries, Strawberries, Apricots, Plums, and Lemons.
Something else to consider is the pollination requirements for your new tree. Many trees are self fertile, meaning they only need 1 tree to produce fruit. Some trees require another dwarf variety to cross pollinate with each other to grow fruit. Many types of fig trees, peach trees, apple trees, and plum trees are self fertile and perfect for growing patio fruit trees in pots!
How to Grow Patio Fruit Trees
Planting Potted Fruit Trees
Growing fruit trees in pots is easy! When growing potted trees on the patio, use a container to grow them that is at least 30cm or 12 inches in diameter, with a drainage hole and plenty of nutrient dense potting mix like our Fruit Tree Planting Mix.
Fill your container with a soil based compost to help retain moisture and water in thoroughly. Be sure to water them thoroughly and on a regular schedule. Container grown plants will need to be watered more frequently because they dry out quicker than when planting them in the ground. This is especially important during the spring and summer months when temperatures are hotter and the potted trees are actively growing.
Where to Plant Patio fruit trees
Patio trees prefer sunny spots outside or by a sunny window. Choosing a planting spot with plenty of full sunlight will help with fruit production. The best time to plant patio fruit trees is in the spring during the growing season, or often in the late summer or fall, depending on the variety.
What Size Do Potted Patio Fruit Trees Grow to?
Dwarf or semi dwarf fruit trees will stay small but may need to be pruned annually or every other year to maintain a desirable shape and size.
Fertilize annually in early spring with a slow release fertilizer to help them jumpstart their growth. Trees will need to be repotted every few years to freshen up the soil and give their root systems room to grow.
