Plant Quick Guide
Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
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.
