Dwarf Fruit Trees Zone 8
When Should You Plant Dwarf Fruit Trees Zone 8?
If you live in a zone 8 region you can plant fruit trees throughout most of the year. We recommend avoiding summer planting since this will be the hardest time of year for your tree to acclimate without becoming stressed. The strong sunlight, heat, and drought are hard on newly planted trees. If you plant in summer, offer plenty of water. Your tree should be watered deeply almost every day for the first month. Winter is a great time to plant dwarf fruit trees, like fig trees, in zone 8. Winters are mild in these areas and the ground rarely freezes. Fall and spring are great times to plant in this growing zone. Early to mid spring are best as late spring can get quite hot in zone 8.
How to Plant Dwarf Fruit Trees Zone 8
Water your potted dwarf fruit tree thoroughly right before planting. Dig a hole about 2 times wider than the pot, but not quite as deep. When you put your fruit tree in the hole the top of the root ball should be just slightly visible above the existing soil line. Backfill with the native soil around the root ball and gently tamp the earth down to remove any air pockets. Water deeply with a hose at the base of your new fruit tree. Let the hose run for about 2 to 3 minutes to allow for deep soil penetration. Add 1 to 2 inches of mulch around your dwarf fruit tree. This helps the ground retain moisture, reduces weeds that can compete for water and nutrients, and protects the roots.
Can You Grow Zone 8 Dwarf Fruit Trees in Pots?
Yes, these fruit trees are perfect for growing in containers. We recommend growing fig trees like celeste and little miss figgy and citrus trees like the meyer lemon, eureka lemon, and key lime in pots. Just remember that these citrus trees should be protected in winter or moved inside. To grow fruit trees in containers, make sure the pot drains well and that you water your fruit plants regularly. Fig trees and citrus trees tend to be fast growing dwarf fruit trees, but planting them in containers will keep the growth rate more controlled. They also tolerate pruning well if you want to keep them small.
Can Dwarf Fruit Trees Zone 8 be Grown Indoors?
Dwarf tropical fruit trees like meyer lemon, eureka lemon, and key lime are great for growing indoors. But they must have an optimal environment to thrive and produce fruit. These plants require full sun, so choose a bright spot in your home or plant lights must be used. These tropical trees love humidity so mist them daily or use a humidifier. The arabica coffee plant is another option for growing fruit indoors. This unique plant makes a gorgeous and low maintenance houseplant.
