I have just received quite a few plants from michigan bulb...

One of which is a Hydrangea macrophylla 'Nikko Blue'. I have 3 very small plants. I was wondering a good size container for these and also if I could put them all in one or if they should be in separate containers? I'd like to put them in the smallest put that would still be okay... As I said they are very small now and will probably take some time to grow... which I then could eventually transplant to a bigger container...

Also, I have some of those mini citrus trees coming and was wondering about pot size for those also...

I am also attempting to grow trumpet vines in a container... I know they tend to get big... but they a virtually sticks at the moment... any container ides for those?

Please don't say to grow these in a garden instead of a container... as there is no garden to plant them in...

I grow all of my dwarf citrus trees in 24 inch pots. A dwarf variety can spend its entire life in a pot this size without becoming pot bound.
The trumpet vine can live in a pot 12 inches or more, however when it becomes root bound you'll have to root prune, trim leaves and replant with fresh soil.
I don't know anything about hydrangeas.
Will you be keeping the citrus in full sun? They need full sun and warmth. I hope you got a Meyer lemon ! ?
