You can purchase chickasaw plum
saplings in garden centers. Pay attention to two things before planting. First, choose an area of the garden that has a lower altitude to plant your chickasaw plum
. This will help it to acquire enough water because its roots are shallow. Additionally, apply sufficient base fertilizer before planting it
, mostly organic fertilizer. Once planted, remember to water it soon after, until the water on the surface of the soil stops draining away. When this happens you have provided sufficient water.
We generally do not sow seeds to propagate chickasaw plum
because the seeds need to undergo post-ripening effects. This means that the seeds are not yet mature when they are harvested
. It is only after a period of special treatment that the seeds can complete their biochemical processes and reach the condition of being mature seeds that are able to germinate.
