Planting and Caring for Your Tamarind Tree

  • Planting- Our tamarind trees can be planted into the ground or left in the container. If you live in a colder climate, leave the tree in its container to protect from chilly temperatures.
  • Sunlight- Tamarind trees thrive in partial to full sun. 4 to 8 hours of sunlight is all your plant will need daily, so make sure to plant or place the tamarind tree in an area that has plenty of sun.
  • Watering- In the summer and spring, your tamarind will grow beautifully. During this time, water the tree once a week. As the temperature cools down, you can slow down your watering process. Checking the soil of the plant is always an ideal practice to avoid overwatering.
  • Pruning- The tamarind tree requires pruning in late winter to grow strong the following growing season.
  • Fertilizing- A slow-release fertilizer is best for this plant during the first 3-5 growing seasons.
