Which type of Skimmia is best for growing in a single pot? I wish to grow one specimen only, so it will need to be self-fertilizing in order to bear berries in a winter display. Am I right to assume that it will only be suitable for a pot for a few years, then get too big for any pot. Or is there any way to keep it permanently small enough, such as removing from pot in winter and trimming top growth as well as pruning the roots, then refilling with fresh compost? Would that work? Advice much appreciated.
