How to Plant Guava Trees

When it comes to guava trees, the more sun, the better. When planting, choose a spot with direct sunlight, unobstructed by any permanent items in your yard. Also, remember that these trees can grow either on the ground and are also very suitable to grow in containers, where they can produce a good number of guavas every year. The guava plant does best in sandy soil and should be watered every other day for the first week to promote growth.
