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.
I ordered 1 Hachiya persimmon tree and arrived in good condition in the box with pot. I planted it with directions and hope it will grow well.
The sapling arrived well boxed, but a little worse for wear. I planted it immediately and it appears to be doing ok. The company was very helpful and responsive to my request to fix a problem with the original order.
I received 2 Hachiya trees in good condition. When I went to plant them, I found that each had a very solid, hard root ball that could not be untangled. I planted them according to directions, but I do not feel very optimistic about their further growth. These trees had obviously been raised from the start in the less than one-half gallon pots. The main roots were the size of the trunk of the tree and twisted around tightly throughout the pot. Will new roots come out of this solid tangle ?
My Hachiya tree arrived after about 9 days in transit. So I was happy that I decided to wait until it had gone into dormancy. Hopefully this will help it recover from shock of handling for such a long time. Although there was a clear Sign on the box to as to how to stand it upright, the FedEx delivery man left it upside down at my door which says a lot about lack of care whenever a plant is shipped. But the tree arrived with no apparent damage to any of its buds, so hopefully it will be ok as Spring growing season arrives.
