Care Guide

  • Watering: Regular watering is essential for the first year after planting. Provide consistent moisture, especially during hot, dry weather.
  • Maintenance: Remove any dead or damaged branches and stems, as well as any suckers that may grow from the base.
  • Pruning: Prune lightly during the growing season to shape the tree, remove any dead or damaged branches, and encourage new growth. Avoid heavy pruning during the summer as this can cause stress to the plant. Prune during the fall or winter to remove any damaged or crossing branches, and to shape the tree before dormancy.
  • (Optional):Fertilize in the spring before new growth appears, using a balanced fertilizer with a ratio of 10-10-10 or similar.
