This article will give you information on how to grow an almond tree in a pot, which is a very simple and easy task. To start off with, buy some good potting soil. You can get this at your local nursery or from the internet and it is really cheap. The soil should be mixed with some sand so that the soil is nice and even after watering.
When you have the right soil, you can begin planting your almonds. Usually the planting area is about a foot wide and about a foot tall. It is a great idea to have a stake or some string to help support the tree as it grows. The reason why you should have a support for the plant is because it will allow you to keep a better watch on it as it starts to grow.
If you are planting your almond plant into a larger container, the first step is to purchase a sweet almond prune. You can usually find these at a nursery or farmer’s market. Get the biggest pruning sheath that you can find. You want it to cover the majority of the root system of the plant, but it should not be able to cover the entire root system.
The second step is to purchase some almond plants seeds or seedlings. There are different brands of seeds and it may be a good idea to buy a couple. When picking out the seeds, look for small black dots and if they have a black spot near them, they are probably not fresh.
The last step in planting your own almond tree in a pot is to actually place the tree into the pot. Once you see the little roots starting to grow, snap the branch off. This should be done about a week before you expect the tree to produce nuts. Usually the nuts will appear around the third month of growing.
Almonds grow best when planted in a container, but once the tree starts to produce nuts, you will have to move it to a bigger container. Before putting the nuts on the market, the nuts need to be sun-wilted to encourage healthy development. Also, keep in mind that almonds grow best in cool, moist soil with lots of nutrients. If you live in a hot area, you may want to choose other nuts to grow like pecan or tangerines.
