Whats on SALE July 2017

Want to make your own Tea Tree Oil?  Then pick up a specimen of Narrow Leaf Tea Tree in a five gallon container for $24.00 on sale during the month of July 2017.  Melaleuca alternifolia is a small graceful tree with lots and lots of white blooms starting in Spring.  Expect fast growth to 19ft high and 10ft wide.  Give regular water when young and continue with moderate water throughout the lifetime of this riparian plant from Down Under.     Native people of Eastern Australia used the medicinal compounds to relieve respiratory distress and congestion.  Poultices and other topical applications were understood to speed healing and help fight infection.  Easy to espalier against a wall or fence and useful in white themed flower gardens where vertical display is desired.
