Dwarf Fruit Trees for Brisbane Climate

Are you wanting to fit more types of fruit trees into your backyard?  Most fruit trees grow to a large size.  Picking all the fruit can be difficult without a ladder.  Now even people with large backyards are choosing dwarf fruit trees so they can fit in a wider variety of the fruits they love.  Dwarf fruit trees are perfectly suited to growing in pots and containers.  The best part is, they still produce the same full-sized fruit as their larger cousins.

^ Suitable for pots (Pots, Large Pots, Ground). “Large Pot” means 45 Litres or more.  Many fruit trees can grow and fruit well in pots and containers, and sometimes can perform better in pots compared to in the ground!  Large fruit trees perform best in the ground as they have a large root system.
