A Tropical Twist on Arbor Day

April 29, 2011

If you thought planting a tree for Arbor Day was impossible due to having a small yard or no yard at all, think again. No space is too small to add a little bit of green space. Arbor Day can be celebrated in an urban environment thanks to dwarf trees. Ever heard of a condo mango? This variety of mango produces a small-statured tree suitable for container gardens or to serve as a patio plant. Condo mangos have a history in Florida, as the name was coined by Dr. Richard Campbell of Fairchild Tropical Gardens in Coral Gables. By keeping the tree pruned and training it to stay small, condo mango trees can be the perfect addition to a condo balcony or greenhouse. Make sure to purchase your Arbor Day trees and other plants from a Florida certified nursery. For more information, visit http://www.freshfromflorida.com/pi or call 888-397-1517.
