Actually been growing roots this winter in my setup:

Going to this grow box this coming spring... want to give it some room to grow. Box is 7" x 6" x 6" with bottom panel raised 1/2" to allow drainage room on bottom. Made of scrap pallet wood for free. Strong little box. Should last 3-4yrs.

I think the drainage holes could be a bit larger. I've had 0.5 inch holes plugged with roots in less than a season.

There is a 1/2" gap along two sides - hence the mesh there. Not worried about drainage. Thanks for the thought though!

Because I used the grow box I planned for this tree for the crab apple forest, I put it in the pot I originally planned for it. Got too excited thogh and planted it at wrong front. Doh! Always next year to repot it.
