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.
I got a total of 6 persimmon trees through two separate orders. The first time I ordered a Saijo Persimmon and received a Fuyu variety. I called and got replacement plant and it was the right variety the second time. Both plants appeared healthy as it was individually shipped. I ordered again for 4 more persimmon trees, but this time all the trees appeared unhealthy and dehydrated.
I'm very excited to plant this tree in backyard next week or so. The delivery was quick and well packed, a couple of leaves fell in the bottom of box but rest of tree was safe and sound. Since its been recovering in partially sun/shady in my yard there are a few new leaf buds start showing which is a good sign. The only question I have is whether its a "conical orange astringent fruit" that means same as "oblong fruit with a yellow flesh".
I purchased four different trees, they came healthy and are growing up fast! Thank you!
I bought Saijo Persimmon trees from Stark Bro's and Plant Me Green. The quality of Plant Me Green' trees are much bigger and more established. The folks at Plant Me Green are professional and pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend Plant Me Green.
Plants arrived in a timely order and were very healthy. Thanks
