I moved them to a warmer location for now. I also purchased come compost and potting soil for the large pot but they were both frozen so have to wait for that to thaw. Should I mix a little sand to help with drainage?

Thank You all for the advice.

Can I put them all in the same large pot for now?


Pictures can help but some things to look for.

1)  soil must have proper drainage.      These trees do not like too much water and will have problems if water logged.

2) Bigger pot.    Just like you don't like a small closet to live in neither do the trees.

3) manure.    They adore horse / cow manure, or fish emulsion.    mix that in the soil with a bigger pot should help you.

I live in zone 5 so i will have to grow them indoors permanently. Once they are older will i need to keep them under a light and in a warm room?

Hello Everyone,

Last week I received 3 moringa trees about 10 inches tall each and they seem to just be dying slowly. I still have them in the small containers they can in and have a UV light on them and it is about 68 degrees where they are at.

Is there anything I can do to revive them? I have a boiler room that it probably 75 degrees I could put them in if that would help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

This coop has never let me down in many, many years. I don’t get anything for promoting them other than knowing I should do my part to keep a great coop going. 💚



Thanks for the recommendation, I had never heard of them.

Has anyone ordered from the Arbor Day Foundation?

Is it worth the extra cost in your opinion?

I am going to be planting roughly 30 fruit trees in my yard this spring and I want to buy all organic trees but theyre price is substantially more than non organic.

Once the trees are sprayed with pesticides are they scared for life?

Will they still produce nutrient dense fruit?

Thank You

Thank you for the reassurance. Is there any other herbs or ground cover recommendations to plants with the berries and trees? I was finally able to attach a picture of the main area I will be using.
