|I was given an orange tree by my brother (he grew it from seed!). I don't have space in my yard to let it grow naturally so can I put it in a large container and still expect fruit?

|You can grow an orange tree in a container but eventually it will outgrow both a large container and the ceiling of your home. Orange trees grown from seed will set fruit, but it usually takes them 10-15 years to mature to the point where they will flower and develop fruit. Good luck with your tree!
