STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Just took my Tonto out of the packaging (big tree), and it is a winner! Tall, many branches, leafing out, and looks very healthy. The packaging held it securely, although some of the staples that held the box shut were loosened by shipping. I am very pleased. I will update after it has time to settle into its new home.
I was very please with the plant but not the packaging. By the time I received it, the box had been damaged and one of the branches was broken. Need to work on better protection for the plant for shipping. That is the only problem I had. I got it in the ground and it is doing very well.
I planted 3 Tonto's fall/2017 and transplanted this spring, so far at least 8" growth, 1 over 12", by end of summer I'm sure it will be much more. I can't wait to see flowers on them.
I couldn’t be happier with my Tontos. They arrived completely dormant but just two weeks after being planted they’re full of leaves. Quick delivery.
