Growing Tea

by Guy » Oct 21st 05 6:13 pm

Can you tell me if it is possible to grow tea in the desert southwest? Can one purchase a tea plant? If so where?

I lust after the tea plants here : http://www.camforest.com/camellia.htm on a pretty regular basis.

Darned apartment living though keeps me out of the market. :(

Hope that helps,

Anna

Tea plants

I purchased tea plants from www.uniqueplants.com
I have not attempted to actually grow them for harvest since I am sure they would not produce a quality tea (especially in the desert!) but they are neat to look at!
