Alberta Gold-A  A lovely gold and yellow fruit, that looks alot like Golden Delicious apple .
This is a local Calgary favourite and will actully grow very well in a zone 2 or 3 cliamte.
Alberta Red- This good looking apple has been around since 1960 and was rescued from extinction by Doc E ath the University of Alberta.
Golden spice pear- this pear does well in Calgary, fruit has a spicy taste and becomes fully ripe by mid to late September. John Pear- Similar sizeA  tree as the above with yellow -green fruit ready to eat by late September. Brook Gold plum- This plumb needs to be cross pollinated with a nanking cherry, nankings are in abundance in Calgary. Evans Cherry tree- this tree can grow to 16 feet and has lovely pink flowers in the spring followed by tasty sweet cherries that are translucent.
A well-planned fruit garden should be able to provide fresh or stored produce for the family all the year round. Unless they are required for purely decorative purposes, there is little point in growing large trees in the kitchen garden. It is wise to grow fruit trees that are trained in an intensive fashion, such as dwarf pyramids, cordons or fans.
MM106 – a semi-dwarfing stock for intensive (trained) trees on poor soils or for bush trees on average soils. Pear rootstocks are fewer and the two most encountered are: Quince A – the one generally used in gardens. Quince C – has a more dwarfing effect but is generally only used on good soils with a vigorous variety. Although it is mainly tree fruit that is trained in space-saving ways, the same principles can be applied to other fruit, such as gooseberries. The pruning described below is based on apples, but the method is similar for other fruits.
Dwarf pyramids are upright frees up to 2.1 m (7 ft) high, with branches growing out in successive tiers to form a pyramidal outline. In the second winter, reduce the leader by about 20cm (8 in) and cut back laterals to about 20 cm (8 in ). When the tree has reached the required height, cut back the leader and long branches at the top of the free by half, in May.
When the tree has filled its allotted space, free it from the wires and lower it a little to give more space. Each year train a new shoot arising from near the base of these laterals to replace them when they are removed after fruiting. Although most fruit is undemanding of time once established, a little extra attention can increase yields.
All tree fruit should be planted in the dormant season between November and March, preferably before Christmas when the soil is warmer. Avoid sites that are subject to late spring frosts; if your garden is in a hollow where frost collects, flowers are more likely to be damaged in spring. The next winter, select four of the current season’s growths and cut back by half to two-thirds, depending on their vigour (the stronger they have grown, the longer they should be left) and position.
Summer pruning is not generally necessary with bush trees, but if the tree makes a lot of growth each year, it is often an advantage to shorten shoots to about 13cm (5 in) in August or September.
Every year, it will pay to mulch the trees with well-rotted manure or corn- but do not let it touch the trunk. In February, apply sulphate of ammonia at 35g per sq m (1 oz per sq yd) and sulphate of potash at 20g per sq m 2 0z per sq yd). Early cultivars should be eaten straight from the tree, but many late apples will store well into the spring.
Both acid or cooking cherries and sweet cherries are best grown as fans, otherwise they make trees too big for the kitchen garden.
Acid cherries are pruned in the same way as peaches, but sweet cherries are bigger trees so must not be encouraged to grow too much. Although peaches can be grown as bushes in the south, it is best to grow fans, especially if you have a south-facing wall. Pruning is basically the same as for apples, though it can be a little harder as pears will not make quite so much growth. Early cultivars should be picked when green and hard, while later cultivars should be left on the tree as long as possible. These are generally big trees, so it is probably best to grow fan-trained specimens against a wall or fence. Fan-trained trees require some skill to produce, so it is probably best to buy one already trained; they are usually two or three years old.
In the first spring after planting, little pruning will be necessary, but in the second cut back branches that are to form leaders by about half. Once established, the leaders should be tied in regularly to the supporting wires to extend the framework.
When the tree is carrying a heavy crop it is important to thin to leave fruits about every 5cm (2 in).
For eating, pick when fully ripe, but for cooking or bottling they should be slightly under-ripe. One of the greatest things about container gardening is you can grow just about anything in the right size pot (you can even grow a great herb garden in a single pot). Check out this tips on how to grow fruit trees in containers (and don’t forget to check out the rest of my gardening tips).
One thing to note is that you won’t have as big of a harvest with trees planted in containers, but you will still get nice homegrown fruit to enjoy! He will explain how to grow blueberries, raspberries and goji berries, as well as pear, apple and peach trees.
Fruit bushes that have been developed to grow well in containers include blueberries and raspberries. In the spring it produces beautiful white blossoms; in fall, the foliage turns a pretty glowing orange.
Above right is a columnar apple growing in a pot placed on the driveway of Walter Kozlowski, who also grows a peach tree in a garbage can.
In addition to fruit plants that grow in containers, Lockwood’s also looks for plants that are new, unusual or hard to find, Safford said. This entry was posted on May 7, 2013 at 2:06 pm and is filed under Garden tips, Uncategorized. It depends a bit on the plant, most blueberries and raspberries that are bred for this purpose should be fine. I would love to see other people's posting of their fruit trees successfully growing and fruiting in pots.

I'ved attached photos of my babaco plants and dragan fruit plants growing in pots with some fruits on them as a start. My babaco plants are around 1 year old and surprisngly they have started to bear fruits in such a short time.
The dragon fruits are roughly a year and a half old and this is the first time it has flowered and fruited.. I also currently have star apple flowering in a pot and in the ground just after 1 year which is really strange.I will post pictures if the flowers turn into fruits. I have a dwarf lemon in a half wine barrel that is about four years old now but doesn't get much fruit (I have two lemons on it at the moment).
My white wax jambu is quite young and it's about 8 months old but it's coming along nicely. To everyone else I would be greatly appreciative if people could post pictures of their plants in pots with fruits or not .
Attached is a picture of my white wax jambu along with pictures of other plants I have in pots and in the ground. The pictures are actually facing up in my directory but seems to be flipped when uploaded onto this forum.Not sure how to fix this . All my fruit trees in pots are around 1 year old apart from the dragon fruit which is a one and a half years old.
I tend to buy the premium organic potting mix from bunnings or at the local nurseries at around $13 for a 30 litre bag. Your pics look great, can you please share your secrets to keeping your wax jambu, rollinia and papaya so healthy through the winter periods? Each morning I push them out into my sunny backyard to soak up the sun and push them back to the side of the house at night . I have most of my fruit trees in the ground but I do have a miracle fruit tree in a pot which i bring inside during the winter.
I'm assuming when you said malay apple it's actually the red malay apple and not the more cold tolerate rose apple? So if you live in the Sydney area and would like a fruiting Babaco plant in a pot without the hassle of waiting,watering,fertilising etc then please make me an offer above my setup costs.
About usGoodshomedesign is an online home design magazine but do not sell the products reviewed or showcased on this site. Years ago in the 1960's and 70's it was very popular to include at least one fruit tree in your landscape.
This tree is self fertile so requires no pollination but may produce a heavier crop if anothe cherry is close by to pollinate. Even on a comparatively small plot it is possible to grow a wide range of fruits, particularly if the right rootstock and method of training is chosen for tree fruits. Standard trees on tall stems are difficult to manage, especially at picking time; they also require a lot of room and take much longer to bear fruit. The three most common ones for amateurs are: M9 – the most dwarfing stock and only suitable where the soil is good and fertility will be maintained. As Brompton and Myrobalan rootstocks are vigorous and will produce fruit trees too large for the kitchen garden, the best for small gardens is St Julian A. Yet confidence is all that’s required, for most systems are based on simple principles. Cut these back in the February after planting, to leave about 60 cm (2 ft) of last year’s wood, cutting back to a cluster of three buds.
Some are self-fertile but most benefit from another compatible cultivar in close proximity. Plant firmly and ensure that the joint between the stem and the rootstock (easily seen as a knobbly growth) is well above the ground. Sometimes frost is trapped by fences, and lifting the fence a little off the ground may allow frost to escape. It is possible to buy these at three or even four years old but they will fruit no sooner than one-year-old (maiden) trees. Bush and dwarf pyramid trees must be supported with a stout stake, while cordons are trained on wires, planting the trees at an angle of about 45 degrees.
In subsequent years, shorten the leading shoots back depending on the growth they have made, and shorten sideshoots to four buds.
Use immediately any damaged or diseased fruit and place the remainder in perforated polythene bags, and keep them in a cool, frost-free place. Acid cherries will thrive even on north-facing walls, but sweet cherries demand warmer conditions and a deep, fertile soil. Do not prune the leading shoot, but when it has filled its space, tie it downwards to limit growth, or cut it out to leave a weaker shoot in its place. Every second year add 70g per sq m (2oz per sq yd) of super phosphate Acid cherries should be fed as for plums.
New shoots are also trained in to fill empty spaces, perhaps where old wood has been cut out.
At this time, also remove old, dead or diseased wood and anything that is growing too vigorously from the centre of the fan. For citrus plants, you can find dwarf varieties for tangerines, tangelos, oranges, limes, and lemons.
Make sure to choose plants that don’t have criss-crossed arms and have no mold growing on the roots.
Make sure not to put too much nitrogen on them though in the dormant months as you don’t want to encourage growth. New varieties have been developed to be smaller, more compact and more attractive in the landscape, according to Fred Safford, who is in charge of trees and shrubs at Lockwood’s Greenhouses. The Top Hat blueberry, seen at the beginning of this article, can be grown in a pot on your patio, he said. We saw his container plantings during the Black Rock & Riverside Tour of Gardens in August 2012.
New varieties of fruit plants can be attractive in your landscape while providing delicious and nutritious food. It still wold be best tokeep them in a protcted spot, close to the home, or even better in a garage.
I would like to start them in 5 gallon pots and train them on a trellis until we move back home in about a year. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.
Being a beginner I just bought the best premium potting mix i could afford and mix it with some existing garden soil.Top it up with fresh cow manure and just water it as soon as the mixture get's a bit dry which is once every 2 to three days . Other plants I have in pots and waiting to flower are soursop, dwarf mango ,sapodilla ,white wax jambu ,bi sexual paw paws,amberalla and dwarf pomellos. Can you please tell me how to care of the white wax jambu (feeding and watering) and how big is the pot for it?

The lights are solar lights and it is a common practice by overseas commercial growers to place a light source at night to quicken the flowering process.Some how a light source with induce flowering more quickly and commercial growers will often have rows of florescent light tubes next to their crop continuosly for 18 days- 30 days after their first crop as to quicken the buds and flowers for the next crop.
I move it to a sunny position during the day and when it rains alot I'll move it under shelter. I'm always intrigue at what people can grow in pots and is always listening for new tips and ideas. I'm just passionate about growing fruit trees especially in pots as it's a real challenge to maintain and nurture them in pots and entice to them to flower and fruit. Mix that with mushroom compost if I have the money and use at least a 55 cm pot for the larger plants as a start. I encourage you to buy premium potting mixes which sells for around $13 - $16 for a 30 litre bag.
Mine was well protected but it still dropped its leaves and this winter was very mild compared to previous years.
Both times, the trees lost all the leaves but recover well, they gave me some fruits after 1 year. For my first one, I covered the soil with plastic bag and cover the leaves with another plastic back.
I can also get another fruting babaco plant if people are interested in buying but the fruits are still developing and won't be ready to be eaten until next August - October.
At a first glance it seems like a hard job, but luckily there are some alternatives that make the whole process more simple and homemade. Appreciation to you for taking the time to put this article together and I’m thankful for the opportunity to comment with other folks. We try to show you what is new and beautiful in this area, arranged in several categories (apartments, ideas, interior design, home decor, home design, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, furniture, hotels & resorts, architecture) related to the area and style.
We have seen the fruit tree start to make a comback in the past few years and more and more of our clients are asking us about what trees grow well and fruit well in Calgary. In subsequent years, pruning is the same, though if fruiting spurs become overcrowded they can be thinned out a little.
It may also be necessary in later years to remove any crowded, crossing or damaged branches.
When growth starts in spring, remove any shoots growing directly away from or towards the wall. I already grow all of my tomatoes in containers (my front yard get the best sun and tomatoes like lots of sun, so I keep the pots in the front of the house) and have now moved on to growing citrus plants in my house in pots!
The material used is up to you, just note that plastic containers can get really hot so will take more watering. For a great hybrid, look at the Meyer lemon which is a cross between a Mandarin orange and a lemon, and it does great in a huge pot!
I just want to put healthy and flavorful meals on the table quickly without having to rely on processed foods, while still trying to maintain a household.
In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois). Michael you have done an excellent job to have these trees producing fruits in small pots like that. The person who sold me the cuttings said that dragon fruits only require a mixture of dried grass cuttings mixed with cow or chicken manure and it should thrive.I only water the dragon fruits once a week .
Hi Michael, did you manually pollinate your dragon fruit or are the garden lights designed to attract moths?
I also have a blueberry that I planted last Dec , also in a half wine barrel (it is growing very slowly).
It's currently in a 55 com pot but at the current rate it's grwoing I will need to re pot pretty soon.
I start of with buying the cheap potting mixes for arounf $4 -$5 and you can notice the difference in health and vigour of the plants . The reason I'm selling mine is that the Babaco is an acquired taste and you either like it or you dont't . 2 weekends ago I deep watered the trees for 10 minutes and since then hardly any mangoes have dropped . Any secondary shoots growing in that year from laterals that have been pruned, should be shortened again in September or October to one leaf. Select shoots growing from the top side and the bottom of the main branches, and space these about 10 cm (4 in) apart, rubbing out others or pinching them back to two leaves. I tried putting the plants in the garage before but unless you bring it outside often the leaves will likely turn yellow . If you really have something good, we will publish it with your own name in our online magazine.
A They can also provide you with an abundance of fresh fruit in late summer and you can freeze or can you fruit to use throughout winter. In areas with a mild winter, make sure to choose apple varieties that grow well in warmer climates.
Initially when I prepared the potting mix I added lots of chicken guts and off bits into my mix and not sure if this helps but it seems to be working . A you with Here are some fruit trees that our customers have had great success growing in Calgary. I don't pay much attention to it as it will be chop down soon to make way for something else.
They seem to like a sunny spot and if you are lucky with fruit set remember to water them a bit more. Opt for potting soil as it has the best features and works well in case of container planting.
A lot of the fruits tend to drop off early but with increased watering this will reduce the problem. When placing the soil on the container, first create a basis where you use gravel and add the soil afterwards. Heathcote is about 50 minutes from Cabramatta so you shouldn't have a problem growing Babaco plants.
After that choose what you want to plant and make a bit of research to find out what are the characteristics of your plant and what kind of weather it prefers.
If you follow the rules, you will have a nice tree and some delicious and healthy home grown-goods in the end.
