So I started some pecans from seed this year, and rooted some mulberry cuttings (much thanks to those who sent me these). Things actually turned out much better than I expected and I have 15 or so tiny trees now. Pecans are dormant (lost their leaves) and I suspect the mulberries will do the same soon as it is getting cold near the outside wall of the greenhouse. I as thinking of transplanting these and was looking for some advice as to what sort of pots to use.
Right now they all are in 1/2gal milk jugs with top removed and drainage holes. It worked for this first stage, but they are in need of something bigger. I was hoping to find something like the nursery 1gal round plastic pot but twice as tall, so there would be plenty of depth for the roots. However I have not had much luck finding anything like this. I’d like whatever pot to be sturdy enough to last a year or two, but light weight and easy to store (since I don’t know when I will use them again after these trees go in the ground).
Anyone have any recommendations? What do you use and/or recommend for 2nd year trees?
