Do I have to plant a pot-grown tree in a pot?


I want to buy a pot-grown apple tree, but I want to plant it in the middle of my lawn, is that possible?

Yes, in fact that is what we recommend. Most fruit trees do better if planted in the ground. Although we supply many of our fruit trees in temporary pots (known as "pot-grown" or "container-grown") that does certainly does not mean you have to grow them on in pots.
