One month ago I bought a 1 metre Sharon fruit tree. It still shows no life , it just looks like a stick, no buds . How long does it take for the leaves to grow?



Hello Galinasan. It's never occurred to me that sharon fruit might grow in the UK, I'd assumed it's a bit too cold here, but a UK website I've looked up says -
"Sharon Fruit will tolerate -18°C when fully dormant and they dislike very hot summers, so will grow very successfully in this climate."

I've seen the fruits being dried on roadsides in China. I hope your tree grows well for you. I looked up sharon fruit on Wikipedia where it says -
"They are one of the last trees to leaf out in the spring, and do not flower until well after the leaves have formed, bypassing the threat of blossom loss to frosts."

So I'd wait quite a bit longer before getting worried. Good luck!
