NEEM TREE - GRAFTED
Often called the Wonder Tree, the neem has been used for centuries in Asia against insects and for some medicinal purposes. The natural insecticide azadirachatin can be extracted from the seeds of the neem tree. Grafting onto the White Cedar rootstock allows for a stronger root system in cooler regions and less problems with dieback in winter. Removal of any shoots from below the graft is essential maintenance to maintain your grafted neem. Weed warning: in Dry Tropics Neem tree regenerates easily and can be a weed problem. Not a problem in subtropical regions.

Question & Answer
Do you have a neem tree or seedling please? I don't understand what grafted is? From: RED HILL ACT
Yes we do have grafted neem and seedlings that we sell. The difference is the grafted ones use a White Cedar rootstock which makes them more cold hardy than the seedling ones. #Neemtree616
