We currently cannot ship to the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or US territories. We cannot ship trees internationally.
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.
The tree arrived ahead of when I expected it. The packaging was excellent and the tree was in great shape. It was larger than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. Even though this is not the best time of year to plant trees in my neighborhood, I got it into the ground within 24 hours of receipt. I will surely have to baby it along during the coming hot summer weather, but it arrived in such good shape that I am really optimistic about its chances to thrive. I can recommend this vendor and will look to them for my future purchases.
You literally broke the majority of the apple tree off to fit it in the box. Im not talking pruned, you bent it over and cracked all the branches. This is some of the worst shipping practices I've ever seen. Tree looks healthy otherwise.
I bought an Ein Shemer bareroot and potted it a year and a half ago. It rooted and grew very well. Within 6 months, it gave us a few apples. They were very small and quite sweet but the flesh was mush. This year, we got about a dozen and a half very sweet, mushy apples. I choked down half of them and threw away the rest. It's next to an Anna and near to a Honeycrisp and a Macintosh. I'll keep it one more year but if I get mushy apples again, away it goes. The Anna is great, very sweet, crisp, juicy and stores very well. We're harvesting the second crop of Anna now and it's flowering for a third! (We live in Los Angeles so the weather is no problem.)
Just bought this one to go along with my already established Anna and Dorsett apple trees. Hoping to have an even better crop next time around🥰- some of the branches were a little wilty with shipping, but perked right up within five days of being planted:)
We have acid, sandy soil & no other apple has done anything here. The ein shermer grew well from the start & 3 years later gave us apples! So we bought 2 more. We were pleasantly surprised at how well they were packaged. They arrived in good condition, sat in the shade for 3 days & now are in the ground doing very well.
