Seed – Sapling – Tree

The seed germination period will vary greatly dependent on the environment. Generally speaking after a few weeks the dormant seed will send up a bright green shoot. Within a few more week the sapling will stand between 20-30cm. You should then plant the young plant in to a larger container remembering to keep it in direct sunlight and the soil moist.

When the tree is strong and reaches around 3 feet in height, dig a large hole, soak the ground, layer it with compost and plant your tree in a sunny spot in your garden. Back fill the hole in with more quality soil and compost. Add a layer of mulch and water well in.

As the tree grows you will be able to enjoy the beautiful and fragrant blossoms. The trees also produce fruit the size of a grapefruit. It’s highly poisonous and should not be eaten on any account. The seeds also make a great decoration or garden ornament.
