This little tree will grow has pretty spring flowers make a great feature in any garden. The fruits are edible too – but very tart so used them in jellies and jams.
These hardy trees have just been repotted so will be fine in their plastic pot for a few weeks but they will eventually do best either in a really large pot on a patio or in the ground.
For best results when planting out, dig a large hole and firm your tree in with manure, seaweed or any other rich compost. A wooden stake is also a good idea to help your tree grow tall and straight.
Underwatering, extremes of temperature and shock can all be the cause of leaf drop. These are hardy trees and are definitely best outside but once planted out they should establish themselves quickly.
