  • These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 24-36” tall, with a trunk diameter between 1/2-1 inch.
  • Within a month of delivery we suggest repotting into a larger (10-12" diameter) container.
  • Like citrus trees, deciduous trees appreciate a well aerated growing medium that retains moisture and also drains well.  Provide full sun, regular feeding and good drainage to keep the tree happy and productive.
