No experience with JM's. Happened upon a specialized nursery on a road trip, and one JM spoke to me, a Lozita. Planted the spindly, 6" high "stem" on a bunch of topsoil (was told to do this by the nurseryman), with some Epsom Salts, Mycorrhizae, and Kelp fertilizer (all at nursery's request). Full Southern Sun, West Wind. Is on its own island, with no competition from other plants. Has VIrginia Red Clay under the mound.
That was 2 Falls ago (counting this coming). That JM has increased its trunk by three times, is full, and foliage almost as dark as our ornamental plum.
With the winter pruning done by Bambi, I have not done any other. It is gorgeous. I need no other.
