  1. That is my kind of tree. Unfortunately it wouldn’t grow in this frigid zone, but I will keep my eye open for anywhere it might be sold in one form or another.

  2. One of my favorite YouTube gardeners has a Moringa growing in his house. I would like to grow one as well but his is over 7 feet tall. Are you able to easily prune these and keep them shorter without killing them off?

    Thanks for the info

    • Hi wonk1,

      Good to hear from you. Yes, you can prune Moringa to just about any shape and size you want. It will grow very tall if you let it. It is a hardy plant that can take a beating so prune away!
