I'm at Lat 45, so it's tough on some trees (and weed), but should do better below Lat 43. You can get a tree in flower
at a garden centre in the spring, and have a few peaches in fall. lol But they're a little expensive. I think I paid $80 or something.
Hey... If you can grow weed, I bet you could grow your own tree in a burlap pot!
