Planting Your Cattley Guava ๐ŸŒฑ

  1. Choose the Right Spot: Find a sunny location in your garden to give your guava the warmth it craves. Full sun exposure is key for optimal fruit production.
  2. Prepare the Soil: Guavas thrive in well-drained soil. If your soil is heavy clay, consider adding organic matter to improve drainage.
  3. Dig the Hole: When planting your guava, make a hole as wide as the root ball and equal in depth. This provides ample space for the roots to establish.
  4. Transplanting: Gently remove the guava plant from its pot, ensuring not to plant it too deep. Place it in the center of the hole, with the top of the root ball level with the surrounding soil. Pack the soil tightly to eliminate air pockets.
  5. Watering: After planting, give your guava a good soaking to settle the soil around the roots. Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid waterlogged conditions.

Caring for Your Cattley Guava ๐ŸŒด

  1. Fertilizing: Guavas benefit from regular feeding during the growing season. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer following the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Pruning: Maintain your guava's shape and remove dead or diseased branches through pruning. This encourages new growth and better fruit production.
  3. Pest and Disease Control: Keep an eye out for common pests like fruit flies. Guava trees are generally hardy but may need pest control in certain conditions.
  4. Harvesting: Harvest guava fruits when they change from green to yellow. Twist the fruit from the branch to avoid damage. Use them fresh or in a variety of culinary creations.
  5. Winter Protection: In colder climates, consider providing frost protection to safeguard your guava during chilly nights.

1. Shipping Stress: Transportation can be stressful for plants, particularly when they spend several days in a confined, dark environment. It’s common for plants to experience leaf drop during this period. Rest assured, most plants typically recover quickly and thrive with minimal aftercare. However, some may need extra attention, love, and care, requiring appropriate watering and exposure to gentle light post-unboxing.

2. Potential Physical Damage: Despite our dedicated efforts to ensure that your plants are securely packaged, they may incur damage during shipping and handling by UPS.

  • For minor damages, such as a broken branch or stem, we advise allowing the plant time to recover and regenerate with proper care and attention.

3. Long-Distance Shipping Considerations: Orders shipped over long distances, particularly to the western US, may take 3 - 5 business days to arrive due to various factors, including agricultural inspections in Arizona, California, and Texas. Such extended transit times can be particularly challenging for tender, young plants, affecting their quality due to prolonged confinement.

  • We take additional measures during packaging to facilitate a swift recovery of the plants upon unboxing.

  • Initial extra care and attention might be required over the first few weeks post-transport.

For further guidance, kindly review our detailed policies on returns and refunds, as well as our comprehensive plant care guide. We appreciate your understanding and patience in nurturing your new plants.
