How to Plant
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.
Care Guide

In order to thrive, fruiting pears need sun and water. For the best results, plant in well-drained soil. Prune pears in late winter. In particular, prune in the middle of the tree to make room for air and light circulation.

You delivered me a tree with green leaves 🍃, no matter that in this zip code we still expect frosts

Definitely not professional

We are surprised to hear that a tree delivered with green leaves in the time period requested at checkout (which I will remind you stated: 'Please deliver my trees between April 3rd and April 7th') and had an exact delivery date via FedEx of April 6th, qualifies as an unprofessional service. Though the pear tree may experience transplant shock, it should survive your early spring just fine.

Kieffer pears shipped quick and arrived healthy. They haven't been in the ground long, but they look great so far! I plan to buy from again.
