Frequently Asked Questions
Is it ever too late in the year to plant a persimmon in my garden?
Persimmon trees are pretty tough, with the heat not really causing too much concern if planted with proper technique in soil that drains at least moderately well. Very poorly draining soil is about the only issue that persimmons struggle with. They do take a fair amount of cold pretty well, hardy to USDA zone 7(0-10°)and higher, so if you have at least a month or two before your first 'severe' frost, still plenty of time. If you end up having to plant in the summer to meet this time frame, plant early in the morning or late in the evening when the summer heat has lessened, be gentle when handling the root ball, and then water well.

Any other tricks?
You can transplant upon receipt of the tree into a larger container. This will give the tree a chance to spread out its roots and begin the growth process, yet still give you the ability to move the tree to a bit of protection if the winter or summer weather gets really crazy. After about a season or two in the container when the tree is a bit more 'rough and ready', then plant in the ground.

Ways to keep an outdoor tree more protected when in a container during the winter?
Move the plant up tight against the house, preferably a spot where you can take advantage of a cover like a porch or covered patio. If you still need a bit more protection, stack the patio chairs or the BBQ in front of the tree to trap a bit more heat....kind of like a mini greenhouse. If a REALLY cold snap is coming, roll the tree into the garage just for a short duration and then back under the patio cover against the wall. Call me if you need to. Always here by phone...
