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
