“The Gardening / Memorable Fancies #1771

[“Ye shall not surely die!” – Genesis 3:4]

… When properly cared for, your tree can be among the most attractive in the Fall garden. Keep it slightly moist around the roots until it reaches fifteen inches in height. Be careful not to fertilize under the drip line, as too much nitrogen will only increase this species’ tendency to bush.

Trees of this genus are remarkably free of insect pests, but sometimes harbor snakes, which may be kept under control with any good herpecide.

The fruit should not be eaten.
