I never paid attention to the growth of my previous one, but there appears to be a foot of growth since this spring. OK, I keep it watered, and I gave it some Espoma tree stuff, but whoa!
I wonder if growth rates are given for trees with the assumption that you won\'t water or fertilize or prune them (all of which I did, because I fuss and fuss!)
