You should plant in the spring or autumn in rich soil that is well drained. Break up your soil to a fine texture so that the root system will spread easily; this will help the young tree to establish itself more quickly.

Propagation

Species are propagated by seed, or by grafting or simple layering in late winter or early spring, or by budding in summer.

Pests, diseases or disorders

Leaf eating caterpillars or aphids sometimes infest plants. Also prone to scale insects, tar spot, Verticillium wilt, leaf scorch and honey fungus.
