There are many ways to have Dwarf Fruit Trees suitable for turning your small backyard into a thriving orchard. To grow dwarf trees successfully in containers all you need to do is supply a rich potting mix and re-pot regularly. Feed the trees every 6 months with a slow release fertiliser, provide plenty of sunlight, and keep the tree moist. The secret with keeping trees healthy and productive in containers is to re-pot and prune (roots and tops) at least every two years.
