First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. 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. 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. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Plant fig trees in loamy soil and in a northern exposure. They need plenty of sunlight and room in order to grow and thrive. Fertilize once a year. Fig trees only require light pruning which should be done in late winter.

Well packaged

Arrived in great condition.....unlike other companies I’ve ordered from.

Arrived fine, and looks OK now, after a week

Plant was in transit 3 days, and looked a bit peaked when it arrived - still wet and leaves green, but cramped. But, after a few days in sunshine and open air, it looks fine. Seems to be a quality plant and I'm very happy with it.

Pecan and Fig trees

So far so good, 4 pecan trees and 1 fig tree planted in North Texas look great.
There was a little browning on the leaves when they arrived but they look great now after about 3 weeks in the ground.


Brown Turkey Figs

This is the third time I've ordered from Plant Me Green. Never a dud in the bunch. This is the first time we've ordered non-bare roots, though. They were packaged very well and the trees were in great shape when we received them. We've had these trees less than a month and there already some fruit on one. Will definitely shop here again.

Happy, happy

Best packaging of live trees I have seen...very secure. 5 stars to shipping.
Recent cold snap in TN burnt off all the leaves. Already has buds started back. Very healthy plants.
