I've been wanting to grow fruit trees for a long time now, unfortunately I'm living in a condo right now where I can't plant trees in the yard :[
The other problem is that I live in Illinois, so a lot of the trees I'd want to plant would die in the cold weather.
I decided to attempt to grow some various fruit trees (plums, peaches, and a red cactus pear of some sort) in large pots keeping them outside in summer and bringing them inside in winter.
Is this a hopeless endeavor? Will I be able to keep them trimmed enough that they'll still fit in my house (lol)?
We're planning on moving within 5 years to an actual house with a yard I can plant whatever I want in. Once I move (assuming the trees are still alive at this point) would the trees have any hope of living outside all year or would the cold kill them?
