Caring for Nutmeg

  • Nutmeg trees should be planted in rich, organic soil with a medium texture and low salinity.
  • The pH level should be 6-7, although they will tolerate ranges from 5.5-7.5.
  • A soil test will aid in determining if the site is appropriate or if you need to amend it to correct a lack of nutrients.
  • Mix in organic matter like bark chips, rotted manure or leaves to buck up the nutrition level and aid in aeration and water retention.
  • Be sure to dig your hole at least four feet deep, as nutmegs do not like shallow roots.
  • Nutmegs need well-draining soil, but they also like it humid and damp, so keep the tree moist.
  • Drying out will stress the nutmeg.
  • Mulching around the tree can aid in water retention, but don’t pack it against the trunk or you may be inviting unwanted insects and opening the tree to diseases
