I was thinking of buying a small fruit tree for the patio. Anyone know what sort would do well in a container, and any tips looking after it? Would it be able to withstand our winter, outside or not?

Maybe one of those dwarf apple or pear trees would suit. We have quite a variety of dwarf trees here in OZ, oranges, lemons, mandarins, mango, avocado etc. I don't know what's available in UK.

My dearest wish would be to grow red/blackcurrants........ our winters are just not cold enough!

My son has a lovely apple tree in a container, bought it 18 mths ago and last aug/sept they had around four apples, loads of very pretty blossom this spring, so probably more apples this year, don't know how it would fair in a really bad winter, I would guess it would need some protection at the roots but it's lovely and has quite a small footprint
