Calamansi pot size and pruning
« on: December 27, 2022, 08:08:21 PM »
I would like to keep a calamansi tree, grown from a rooted cutting, roughly 6 feet tall and 6 feet wide. Can this be done on its own roots? If so what would be the recommended pot size and pruning regimen? 15 gallon pot, canopy and root prune every spring?

6 feet by 6 feet will need a 60 gallon pot.   Better yet a 150 gallon pot

There was a post here about trees in "mobile" pots a while ago within the past 2 years. One linking to an article about trees in Europe (France?) And what Kaz does with a large wheeled garbage can! Those posts might help.
