Neem seedlings are our best value — and you’ll be amazed at how fast they grow!
They’ve survived the difficulties of sprouting and now have been transplanted into their own pots so they’re ready to grow. Most of our neem seedlings are root-bound so they’ll appreciate being transplanted into one- or three-gallon pot as soon as you get them. They’re not quite ready to put in the ground, even in tropical climates, but you’ll be amazed at how quickly a neem seedling grows once it’s out of a small pot.
You can place an order to be at the top of what is typically a long waiting list when it finally warms up, but we can’t ship tropical plants “to or through” places with freezing temperatures for the upcoming week. That means if you want a tree in sunny San Diego but it’s just 16 degrees in Memphis, the truck carrying your neem seedlings is almost sure to spend the night in a frozen cold place and they will arrive dead. If you’re in northern California, we check temperatures in Chicago for the same reason. In the northeast, we’ll check your destination before we decide to ship.
GROWING TIPS: Soil should always be a premium potting mix — not topsoil — without any “water managing” properties. Fertilizer should be balanced with the three numbers in big print somewhat equal. For instance, chemical fertilizers are usually available in a 20-20-20 formula. You may need to mix and match with organics, balancing fish emulsion with bone meal and kelp.
CUSTOMERS IN HAWAII, PUERTO RICO, ARIZONA AND OVERSEAS: Hawaii and Puerto Rico do not allow any plants from Florida to be shipped into their states. Arizona requires a $60 phytosanitary inspection and shipment to an approved nursery. We do have partners in this areas who can provide trees. Overseas customers, including those in Canada, Mexico, and the EU must pay for a $60.00 phytosanitary inspection before trees or living plants can be shipped. We’re trying to compile a list of growers in other countries, please Contact Us, if you grow neem you would like to sell.
Please contact us immediately if your plant arrives damaged in shipment. If your plant becomes sickly or fails to thrive, please let us know immediately. We’ll need photos and growing conditions to help you save your plant.
We replace living plants at our discretion within the first three months, once we are sure that you have properly cared for the plant following our directions. We do require that you pay shipping costs on the plant unless it arrives damaged and we can file a claim with the USPS for replacement.
