Just bought this variety in a container which has split down the side so needs to be replaced. The young tree is 6 feet from top of a container that is 9.5" high & 10" across. Should I do so & into a slightly larger container at this stage of the winter? It's not frosty but it could become so in coming weeks. The alternative is to put the tree/container into a larger pot until the risk of frost is past - maybe March/April? I might be moving later this year so I need to keep it in a container; when re-located I plan to train it into an espalier along a trellis or fence - do you know if this variety would be suitable for this treatment?
