My trees have not survived ... after several months? What can I do?

There are many reasons why tropical trees do not survive. If you reside in a USDA growing zone lower than 9, the chances of tropical trees surviving when planted on the ground are slim.

However, growing tropical trees in containers and greenhouses may be your only viable option.

Warning: It is important to note that even though this method (growing in containers) may increase the chances of survival, it does not guarantee success.

Some people are able to grow tropical trees in containers in zones lower that 9, but the odds are stacked against you, especially if the trees are not protected during the cold winter nights.
