If you want to grow Palmer Mango in a pot then a minimum of 25x25 inches of length & width and maximum size depends on you.
You can plant Palmer mango trees at any time of the year, but the most preferable time is June to July in low rainfall areas and October to November in high rainfall areas.
Palmer Mango grows well in all soils but it shows good results in well-drained soils with an Ideal pH range from 6.5 to 8.
Manures and fertilizers should be applied 2 months before the blooming seasons. Fertilizers are applied 45 to 90 cm away from the trunk.
Avoid watering 30 days before harvest.
Palmer Mango trees need higher doses of nitrogen when young, but after they begin to bear fruit, they need less. At that time, they need higher doses of phosphorus and potassium, which promote blooming and fruiting.
Use a commercial organic fertilizer with a high percentage of potassium, such as 5-8-10, for fruit-bearing hybrid mango trees, or apply these nutrients with organic materials. Compost is a good organic source of both potassium and phosphorus. You can also use rock guano, phosphate, blood meal or bone meal to provide phosphorus, and seaweed to provide potassium.
