Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Kentucky Coffeetree

Kentucky Coffeetree Planting Diretions


The Kentucky Coffee can be planted in any soil condition as long as it's in a location that receives full sun. Plant in a hole twice as wide, though just as deep as the root ball. Mulch around the canopy, but not near the trunk. The mulch will help the tree maintain moisture. Plant away from power lines, structures, sidewalks and sewer lines.


Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth.
