Re: Anyone using airpots?

I am growing a mango tree in a 12 gal airpot. They seem to work very well, this mango tree is one of the healthiest and has flushed the most leaves recently.

Re: Sapodilla in CA

Brian,

I am growing a 'Silas Woods' sapodilla in a container in SoCal. So far it has been very slow growing, don't expect any fruit from it for at least 3 years or so.
