Almond Trees For Sale – Planted Or Outdoor Potted Trees
You have decided you want a backyard or patio almond tree. The beautiful blossoms will create a wonderful uplifting affect on your small or larger scale landscaping design. You may not benefit from any nuts for a few years. When you do, you will have a little competition for them if you have any urban or rural animals keeping a sharp eye on your crop!
Almond trees need good drainage, to prevent root rot. This drainage factor also influences how well the tree is anchored in its soil, stable against strong winds, for example. In a sheltered yard or patio area getting blown over will not become a problem, but in open spaces it’s good to keep the soil moisture level in mind.
It’s best to let the almond tree dry out completely between waterings.
Almond trees thrive best in a climate with the colder months being November and December, followed by slow warm up. Yet, I have seen them grow well in the Canadian seasonal climate. Of course this was a landscaping decision, not a commercial project for crops.
Small potted trees for patio design can be an advantage for certain homes. The pot ensures good drainage, and you can place it where you want.
Another advantage of a container planted almond tree is that if you are in a cold climate, you can bring your almond tree inside for the winter. Such an easy way to protect your tree and your investment.
Almond blossoms vary from pink to white. The almond is part of the Rose family of plants. Its blooms are fragrant and will attract the honeybees it needs to get cross-pollinated. You will contribute to the honeybee health in your area and I believe they need all the help they can get these days.
If you are a romantic gardener, read the Greek myth about the Princess Phyllis, and the origin of almond trees.
