How warm are you keeping the greenhouse? These dwarf trees are zoned 8-11 so if it is struggling you may need to warm it up.

Grow in average, lightly acidic, well-drained soil; avoid alkaline soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune to shape after flowering in summer.
