Grow your own neem! We sell healthy neem trees with strong root systems ready to thrive!
Shipping size is 20-24 inches tall.

SKU: 1001 Category: Tags: ,

NOTICE:

Due to shipping restrictions, only 3 trees are allowed per order. You can place as many individual orders as you like, but each tree order is limited to 3.

After a very wet but warm winter, full-sized neem trees are back in stock. It’s been so warm here that all our neem trees outgrew the three-foot tubes we use to ship them in, so we cut everything back. Then, the lower leaves apparently fell off when they got all that extra light they weren’t expecting. They’re bushing out now and looking better than ever!

We still have lots of gorgeous neem seedlings in stock too!

Although the trees are back in stock, we’re still catching up from the long cold winter when we couldn’t ship through the Midwest. We check temperatures across the country every Sunday afternoon and plan our Monday shipments accordingly. We can only ship to (and through) locations that are above freezing at night. We use Memphis as the flag for freezing in the southeast and southern California but check the Chicago weather before shipping to the northwestern U.S.

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.

WEATHER ALERT!

We are continuously monitoring weather conditions and will NOT ship plants during cold winter conditions. That means that if you order plants during the winter season, there is a strong chance that your ENTIRE ORDER may be held for delivery until Spring. Therefore, you may want to order live plants SEPARATELY of neem products.

 

For more information, read the “growing neem” directions in our article section.

This is not Sweet Neem, we are not allowed to sell sweet neem because it is a vector for a disease that kills citrus trees.

We ship living plants on Mondays and Tuesdays so they don’t spend the weekend in a box. If you need it more quickly, please be sure to make a note in the comment section.

Free shipping is not available on plants.

Please be sure to read our Plant Replacement Policy before purchasing live plants.

    Very healthy nice sized plants with a good root system.

    Neem tree appears healthy. However, I was disappointed with the size. The picture shown with the $27.99 tree is much larger. And there was no price for the larger tree in what appears as a three galleon container.

    This is my 4th Plant. In California we do not have planting mix which can drain easily. Most of the planting mix we get is water saver. This time I have planted with 50% planting mix and 50% sand. In India it grows any where without care without mulch

    I purchased one of your trees several years ago. Unfortunately it was damaged during shipping, and needed a little bit of extra TLC to save it and keep it growing healthily. Here in Houston, Texas, it survived quite well and flourished with long, strong, full branches. It easily reached about 12 feet in height before it dried up from the random hard freeze one night in early 2014. I still have the leaves we saved from it and they are still just as effective as when they were fresh.

    I’ll be ordering another tree sometime this year. Probably sooner than later, I just need to figure out where to plant it though, as we have all sorts of greenery in our backyard already. Maybe I’ll just keep it in a large pot this time to make it mobile and a bit easier to protect from winter temperatures.

      Hi Marwyn,

      If you decide to try another tree, check out the growing directions for Central Florida (which I’m going to change to Zone 9). We’ve gotten a lot better over the years at getting trees to rebound — all of ours came back after five nights below 28 degrees in 2010. Mulch is the key, you end up with composting (think hot!) microclimates and if you can save the roots, then the tree will come back.

    Received my tree about six days ago. The package looked like it was roughly handled. The contents however did not seem to be damaged & the leaves were ok and the root ball plastic pack was intact. I was unable to plant it right away. I had to wait 3 days. But I kept it indoors for those days.
    By then some of the leaves fell off and the others looked stressed. I potted it on the 4th day and spritzed the leaves with
    water. That seemed to help. It’s been in the pot 3 days now and the few leaves that are left look like they are not going to
    hold on much longer. I’m still spritzing and praying the little tree will forgive me and put out some new leaves in a show of
    forgiveness. Our temperer here in the Palm Springs area fortunately has only been between 97 and 105. Plus some welcomed humidity ( 30 to 40 percent) I have the pot in a area of broken sunlight.
    I know I have not handled this transition in the best possible way. My hope springs eternal and it would be nice if the
    lovely little tree felt the same way. Next week the weather report says 117 degrees expected. I plan to bring it inside
    when that happens.
    My above rating only pertains to the rough way the shipping company damaged the package. The tree as I said above
    was in good shape when it arrived. So thanks to Neem Team for that.

      Let us know how it does Jim! If you email us photos of the box, we can probably file an insurance claim with USPS. They’ve been really rough with some trees this summer :( Don’t let the roots get too wet, but you can spray the leaves with water and that will help a lot!

    I recd the tree about 10 days ago. The top few leaves were wilted. I planted it right away. I am hoping it will survive. It looks a little sad and the leaves are drying out and falling off

      Hi Thiaga,

      Be sure not to overwater it even when the leaves are wilted. Water to neem trees is to bacon like people — a little bit is good but too much clogs our arteries. If the leaves stay wilted, try spritzing them with water or diluted fish emulsion (assuming it’s outside not in your house!) a couple of times a day.

    Received the tree and leaves were wilted. Planted it outside in good weather, and still not surviving or coming back. I’m going to order another one soon and try to keep it indoor in a little bit more controlled weather as it does get down to 60 farenheit at night in california. Hoping the next one does better. I think my first one isn’t going to come back.

      Hi Prakash,
      I’m so sorry your tree arrived damaged. We’ll send six trees for the price of four on your next order to help make up for the problem with the first tree. Neem is great in southern California but does need an acclimation period to go from the jungle in Florida to your desert. Please review https://neemtreefarms.com/neem-in-california-and-arizona/ for more information and feel free to call my cell at 813-689-2616 with additional questions.

    My poor little tree had a very rough start. The package was bent in half from the post office. They told me to refuse it, but it looked like it wasn’t damaged too bad so I kept it. Then I promptly almost killed it. I mistakenly planted it in moisture retaining soil. Exactly what the directions said NOT to do. I didn’t have any other soil. It quickly wilted and all the leaves fell off. I then removed all the soil and planted it in cheap top soil & mixed with sand. It is feeling much better now and the top of the plant has a little sprout! I brought it in the house as we get way too much rain here in Western Wisconsin. I let it get thirsty in between waterings. Hopefully it will be ok now. I have it in a southern window.

      Thank you for all your love and attention to the damaged plant! USPS is mostly careful with their mailing tubes but some carriers literally fold them in half to fit in a mailbox. We do have insurance on them though so let us know if you need a replacement plant (and saved a photo of the box so we can file a claim).

    I LOVE Neem Tree Farms!!! I received my beautiful tree per description. I was very impressed by the packaging. Everything was securely taped in place to protect during shipping. My tree is doing amazingly well and vibrant!!! Thanks for the bonus surprises included with my tree! I have already ordered additional seedlings, awaiting their soon arrival!

    Not a very big plant, but it’s been growing fast & well. Followed instructions that it came with, and keeping it away from prolonged direct sun (Florida summer!) helped.

    Updated review – got a call and based on directions, moved the tree indoors and let the soil completely dry out. Made a difference and the plant is coming back slowly. Updating to 5 stars.

    (verified owner):

    Plant arrived perfectly in good condition. I followed the instruction and the plant is coming along. It did loose a lot of leaves but its slowly getting adjusted to the hot and dry climate of California. I just hope it will grow into a healthy tree when I finally transfer it from pot to my backyard. Although I am worried about the winter when its put into the ground.

    Any suggestions for winter season will be greatly appreciated.

    Note: I kept the plant in full sunlight and it did not workout. Keeping it under dappled sunlight works best for the plant if you choose to keep it out.

      Here’s another copy of growing neem in California and Arizona — you have to take special care of them when they leave the jungles of Florida where it rains every other day and move to your desert. https://neemtreefarms.com/neem-in-california-and-arizona/ They actually prefer “wet” heat because they don’t lose as much water through transpiration. Once it starts showing new growth, you can plant it in the ground and in the sun. It will love winters in Sacramento but it may need a little water until it’s well established.
