Care: Keep in pot until late March or early April, and bring in if there is going to be a frost or freeze. Then the tree can be planted in the ground. Full sun is best. Plant in well drained location using the existing soil only. It can be lightly fertilized in early summer with an organic fertilizer.
Cold tolerance: After protecting the first winter, the tree is hardy to about 20 degrees. The first winter protect by covering with a blanket and protect the trunk by piling mulch as high as possible.
