Growing fruit tree in 15inch planter pot (Vegas)

QuestionHi

I have a 15inch pot with 3" diameter at the base, 6" high, with big holes for drainage but no drip. The trees are in good shape but they need more height.

I want to have grapes, one fruit tree and a small nut tree. So I am looking for a height for the fruit trees and a planter for the nut tree. (to attach to the planter not the tree)

Question: Can you have these fruit trees in one 15" pot?

eller

Can you have these fruit trees in one pot, size around 30", height 12" or something, attach to the pot or tree and have them grow together or a collection in one pot (planted in the same soil)?

eller

Can you have these fruit trees in a 10 inch pot with smaller fruit trees?

I am thinking if a 30" planter is good, with the tree maybe a 15-20"

Some pictures if I do the best I can to upload them

Takk skal du ha.

I have not seen the trees you are talking about, but they would have to be quite mature, like 25 years of age or older, in order to reach the trunk or 18 inches, with some larger species, like the two macaws. If you were looking for stocky growing stock like Pomegranates, peaches or plums, I believe you would need a 40-50 inch container or more. A 15" in an area with sunlight all day is plenty. But I would be very surprised if the tree will reach 18 inches.

Takk for ditt svar. I have watched a few videos on fruit trees and as I understood it it would take a minimum of 15years and up to 50 years to develop a tree that big. so I believe it's easier to grow them in a container.

My question is about 3 levels and a narrow pot. Can it be done and what do I need to keep it healthy? (in 10 inch pot and still a tree or plant to go in it. will need to attach the nuts to it)

Pomegranate and macaws are non-draining types. But it won't be so bad in pots, as I can have plenty of water in the pot and I won't have to dig out the soil. It's just that my plants are a lot bigger. If the roots of the tree are spread, it will have a healthy life. That is, even if you must rotate the tree every year, not more often.

As to the 30 inch planter, that's fine, provided it's enough for them to grow up. In fact, I would go even further and plant them in 30" containers.

If you are thinking of other fruits, then you need to get them out of the sun, or just put the container in the shade. The soil should be well-drained and it would be better if it is fertilized.

That's what I think. I'm not a technical gardener, so I don't know how much more needs to be done to the soil or to the roots.
