When the seedlings came they were in excellent shape. They only had to travel a little ways up the coast in Florida from Bradenton to Palm Harbor.
The immediate impetus that lead me to order the seedlings from I Love Moringa was a video about the development and use of moringa in third world countries. You can see this same video at Moringa Documentary Video.
Not everyone would order the seedlings, since they are cold sensitive. The vendor says they can survive a frost, but, not a hard freeze.
I haven’t seen a hard freeze in my neighborhood since I moved in. I believe the nearness to Lake Tarpon, and the abundance of tree cover keeps the ambient air a little warmer than it otherwise might be in the winter.
Still, it could happen. You never know. Break out the smudge pots. (Ha, ha.)
You can see what they look like in the photo. Only about eight inches high. They sure don’t look like trees yet.
I’m suppose to keep them in the pot for 10 days before planting them.
