Grew up gardening with my mom. Moved from a city garden in zone 6b to beginning a country garden in 4a. Looking forward to developing both!

Thank you! I saw some pics where people braided the trunks, should I do that? Not sure if that was done for stability or decoration.

The braid is mostly decoration that shops do... I'd be hesitant to braid it if it was grown into one from the beginning, the tension could snap it. My mom tried that with a Pachira (money tree) and a side branch broke, didn't spell doom for the plant, but my mom stopped messing with it.
