Planting tips: Plant in a sunny position. Watering the newly planted tree/bush is essential! Straight after planting, then every day in the first week, and then twice a week for a month to give the young tree the best conditions to get established. From the second month, you can reduce watering to once a week for the first year.
Growing tips: Guava is an easy-to-grow plant, that loves the sun and moderate watering, however, the better the soil, the quicker and better the will grow. All our edibles grow happily and quickly in slightly raised garden beds.
