I was given a Jacaranda tree seedling...currently 18cm tall, not including roots. When will it be ready to plant out? I live in Auckland, New Zealand so good growing conditions. Thanks

I would always recommend that a tree spend its first year inside, to acclimate. If you are sure that the tree will do well in your climate, and would naturally grow there anyways, then you should be able to plant it out at any time during the early active growing season.
