Q: I have a two-gallon Norfolk Island Pine. Can I put it in the yard or should I leave it in a container?
A: The Norfolk Island Pine is a tender plant and should be left in the pot. If planted outdoors it will eventually freeze unless giver proper protection.
Q: The leaves at the bottom of my Norfolk Island Pine are browning. What can I do to keep it green and full?
A: This is a normal progression of events. High light levels will keep your plant skirted for a longer time. As the plant gets older it will drop the lower growth in order to put on new growth at the top.
Q: I have a seedless grapefruit tree that I am growing in a pot. What should I do with it?
A: The grapefruit tree should be in a sunny spot for best growth. Fertilize it with a granular product three times a year. If you are always going to have it containerized it will eventually need to be in a 15-gallon or larger pot.
