Nursery Grower's bulletin for growing shade trees in buckets (10-15 gal)

Asked January 26, 2014, 12:43 AM EST

Is there a bulletin for growing shade trees in buckets? At first, we don't want to invest in a pot-in-pot infrastructure, so we want to put the containers on weed-mat and stand them back up when they blow over. I have grown shade trees for a living and would like to start with 6-8' whips as bare-root liners.

There is not an Extension publication for growing trees in buckets. You have indicated that you live in Jefferson County, Kentucky - I recommend following up with your county Extension Horticulture Agent, 502-569-2344, for further advice on nursery production of trees.
