    I bought and planted 100 baby trees from my county tree sale. They are about 12-18 inches tall. I have heavy deer pressure and the trees are getting decimated.
    I also have a large garden that is surrounded by an electric fence. I'm thinking about digging up my remaining baby trees and growing them in pots for a couple years. I'd put the pots inside my garden area so they would be safe from deer. Has anyone done anything like this? Any recommendations on soil to use? Fert? Watering frequency? Would 5 gal buckets with drainage holes work ok?

    Thanks

    Have a local nursery who plants on property.some trees been there for years and root in ground but rip out fairly easy in containers. I've read somewhere that it will keep tree smaller over its lifetime though
