We can ship our "Other Edibles" (non-citrus plants) and growing accessories to most states, including Texas, Arizona or Florida.

 

Sorry, we do not ship any items to the US Virgin Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico or to API/APO addresses, or to other countries at this time.

 

Due to agricultural restrictions, we cannot send any fruit, foliage or plants in soil to Hawaii. We can ship all other non-tree items to Hawaii, as well as Bare-Rooted 3 Year-Old citrus trees.



 

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.
