My Victoria plum tree its in a pot 21ins wide X 10 ins deep the root stock is above the soil
Its been in it about 6 years it is on 2 & half foot of good top soil but it never gets water logged
It is a patio tree grows 6ft tall

On plant Victoria plum tree leaf curl




Hi Dave 10 inches is not deep enough for a plum tree and as it is standing on 2.5 feet of soil I wonder why you haven't just planted it in this. The 'root stock' is what the scion (growing top) has been grafted onto. As such part of it should be in the ground and part above ground. Is there a reason why you are keeping it in the pot?
