Q. how do I kill the jujube trees

How do I kill the jujube trees that come from a tap root in a neighbor’s yard. These trees are full of thorns.

You can't really stop them if they are growing from suckers from the neighbors tree. You can cut them off and paint the cut with Roundup and that will kill it back to the root, but I will warn you that doing this may harm the neighbors tree.

Can you include a photo and your climate zone? This can help me to see what is going on. Are they planted near each other, or in separate areas?

Q. Jujube tree

Hi,
Can a jujube tree be grown in a greenhouse in a large pot? We have deer and wild turkeys that eat leaves and fruit off of the trees in our yard. Will the tree produce jujube fruits if not planted in the ground? Please advise. Thanks! George

A greenhouse is a great way to grow trees or plants outside of your growing zone.

Please ensure that you give the tree a fertilizer every few months with high levels of phosphorus and potassium, and ensure the tree gets water during dry periods. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/jujube/
