Care Guide

High Pest/Disease resistance

Generally pest and disease resistant

Water regularly when newly planted

Water nearly everyday during the first few months after planting. Once established, rainfall should be adequate, but may need some extra water during dry and hot spells during the first few years

Full Sun

Position in Full Sun (6h+) or partial shade

Moist but well-drained soil

Can grow in almost any well-drained soil, from sandy to clay and from acidic to slightly alkaline

Prune Annually

The best time of year to prune is late Autumn, in winter or in early spring. The tree should be dormant when you trim it so it will have a chance to heal before producing leaves and flowers. Generally, pruning is unnecessary. You may wish to prune while it is still young and establishing its shape. Otherwise, the only necessary pruning is to remove dead branches or weak or broken limbs
