I like to plant annual herbs, flowers, or strawberries in the large tubs that I have trees in. They only use the top few inches of soil, they shade the roots of the tree, provide a bonus crop or fragrance/color, and attract beneficial insects.

Morag, if you grow inside in a sunny spot or in a greenhouse, you may be able to.

Great tips. I am wondering what suggestion you might have for people living more north (Zone 2 or 3)? Can we still grow tropical tree inside?

Good ideas. Rejuvinating the soil also let's you check rootball size (for possible transplanting needs). I've got a dwarf fig and dwarf kumquat-indoors in winter, outdoors in summer. Figs and kumquats aren't fond of Reno winter. :-)

I've got to try this with at least one apple tree and quite possibly other fruit trees as well.
