Taking care of your tree in its container

WATERING YOUR TREE IN ITS CONTAINER

  • Water your Century Tree seedling twice a week — every three to four days — until planting time.

  • Fill the container to the rim with water, and allow the excess water to drain through the bottom.

  • Stick to the watering schedule, even if it rains.

WHERE TO PLACE YOUR TREE WHILE IN ITS CONTAINER

  • Make sure your Century Tree seedling’s container is located in full sunshine.

  • In case of freezing weather, bring your seedling indoors so it doesn’t freeze. Once the temperature warms up, it can be returned outside.

  • Make sure your Century Tree seedling is out of reach of curious pets and livestock. Do not let pets or livestock chew, urinate, or otherwise investigate your new tree.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • Watch out for insects that could be munching on your Century Tree seedling. If you see insects, spray the tree’s leaves with Neem Oil, following the instructions on the label.

  • Do not add any fertilizer products to your tree while in its container. Learn more about fertilizing your tree once it’s been planted in the ground for six months or more.
