10 Top Trees to Grow in Containers

There are plenty of reasons to grow a tree in a large container. For urban gardens and those with little outdoor space, a potted tree can make a small terrace feel more like a garden and, if you plant a fig or lemon, provide you with fruit as well. In larger gardens, potted trees add drama with their stature and act as striking focal points on the patio or when placed on either side of an entryway.

When choosing your tree, use the same criteria as you would for choosing any other plant: Select a variety that will thrive in your climate and with the light exposure and moisture of your site. However, growing trees in large pots comes with a few special considerations — not all trees are happy to grow in containers. There are plenty that tolerate it just fine, though.
