  1. Question

    senea (verified owner)

    I see that this tree likes the sun and dryish soils. Can I plant this now? Outside. Or put it in a 1 gallon pot with which dirt? Keep it outside? It looks to freeze every morning as far as the 10 day shows and maybe the whole winter! Last year was shockingly frigid at sunrise. Had to shut down the garden water for long periods of time. There still are many sunny days. Does it care about the wind.

      hi senea, repot to a gallon of standard soil with some sand mixed in. Protect from freezing. Give as much light as possible. Wind is no issue.r
