I just bought this for $130 from a nursery (reduced because it was the last year stock) This year's stock had greenish colors for bark an the leaves totally green. It is almost 9' long (the longest branch-did not fit in the picture)
Here are my questions:
-is there anybody living in Toronto who has this tree ?
-would it be a good idea to move it in a big pot and find the best spot for him for the rest of the year and then move it in a corner where it can sit for the winter wrapped and sheltered from wind and cold temperatures ?
-for how long can you keep a tree like this in a big pot without crippling the tree's growth ?
-is it practical to consider that at maturity I would still be able to wrap it in burlap?
