how to grow

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Generally unbothered by pests and diseases.

A little watering when new

When newly planted, the tree would love a little watering at least once a month for the initial couple of months. Afterwards keep moist but well drained.

Full Sun to Partial Shade

Position where the tree will receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight every day during summer and spring. This variety can handled some partial shade where it receives its light as dappled shade.

Any fertile, well-drained soil

If your soil is particularly clay heavy and gets waterlogged often, make sure you mix in plenty of organic matter and perhaps even gravel or perlite to help improve drainage.

Feeding not required

No feeding needed. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
