Gardening: 2010 season in Food Traditions & Culture Posted March 16, 2010 @ CKatCook: not dwarf trees that I know of. Just potted. The Lemon is about 18" tall, and in a 14" pot. The Olive I saw last year was a Spanish variety, and about 3' tall in a 14" pot. Both of these were at nursery stores in our region. The biggest concern for either of these will be watering. The balcony faces southeast, and the building has a lot of glass and concrete for absorbing heat and reflecting light.Interesting, so the containers restrict the roots, which restrict the growth? I am thinking of going to get a peach and a pear since they are in the stores now.
