Philip McGill asked 10 years ago

I have been growing two apple trees in pots, and they are going into their second year of winter. I am asking if you think they would be able to survive the winter outdoors at this young stage and if they will loose their leaves. Also, should I continue fertilising throughout winter?

Apple trees can be grown in pots with assiduous care to watering, and liquid feedin from April to September, every two three weeks.

But they are better in the open ground and always lose their leaves in autumn. Apple trees are hardy and not affected by frost.
