Allspice

Pimenta dioica, Allspice
Diary of Allspice Bonsai 


The allspice tree came from WellspringGardens.com a while back. These trees smell amazing when the sunlight hits them for a little while. 

The tree was transplanted with a dose of Mykos. I think it got a bit frosted after being close to the window, but now that the temperatures are warming up the growth spurt is on and the leaves look really healthy.

Allspice happens to grow really well in planters and in up to 30% shade or indoors or in patios.  The tree can bear fruit in about three years, if it has male and female flowers. Some do, some don't.  

Until the berries are here, the leaves can be used.
