Apple tree seedling help

  1. Is it possible to plant small Apple seedlings in a 5 gallon buckets of good dirt to grow in and get bigger before permenant planting not spot!?! Any info would be great.
  2. I hope I'm not the one to burst your bubble, but growing apples using seeds is overwhelmingly like to grow a tree that produces nothing but crabapples.

    Apples are not marijuana: using an apple seed from "x" variety will not give you a seedling of "x" variety.

    That being said, yes. You can transplant small apple trees from a 5 gallon bucket to a new, larger spot.

  3. They don't have to be good apples. They are for wildlife and planting around the property for deer. Just don't want to plant them this small I doubt they will make it.
  4. Then yes, you can certainly transplant an apple tree after starting it in a 5 gallon pot!

  5. How long do you think I could keep them in buckets like that?
  6. I can't tell you for certain. Until the plants look like they're too big. A few months of good sun, maybe?
