How to Plant
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.
The order was fulfilled quite well. I regret the purchase as these plants do no hold up well to the Texas heat and sun and summer doesnt begin until tomorrow!
Bush was in excellent condition when delivered. Planted and growing well.
The plant came quickly and in good health!
Came in healthy condition, produced blueberries within weeks which I did not expect. Awesome bush. Soil moist and acidic PH.
I'm very pleased with this order! The bushes were healthy and bigger than I expected. Shipping was fast and the plants were packaged carefully.
