What nursery was that?rainbowgardener wrote:I will tell you my experience with growing JM's. When I decided I wanted one, I looked around and found a mail order catalog that specialized in them. I splurged and paid $40 for one. When it arrived, it had a trunk about the thickness of a thread; it had fully leafed out and died, by the time it got to me. I contacted the company and they just said they don't guarantee anything and it must be my fault.
Later I found a very nice little specimen at Kroger's grocery for $10. I bought it and planted it. It thrived and was beautiful. Ten years later or so, when I moved away, it was 6' high and wide and doing well.
Don't buy one from a catalog unless they tell you the size of the tree you will be getting and guarantee it for at least a year.
