The trees arrived in good shape and are looking in good shape
My Ichi Ki Kei Jiro arrived in great condition. It had beautiful, glossy leaves and a good root system. The plant arrived undamaged and showed little to no signs of shipping or transplanting stress.
My only complaint is that the shipping seemed a little slow. PMG waited 7 days to ship my order. The mail carrier delivered it 4 days after shipping. Eleven days seems like an eternity when your waiting for a special little tree.
My tree arrived with a top broken out about 3 inches, and had lost all leaves on one small branch. It is now struggling to get out of shock but by the end of each day it looks weaker.
The persimmon plant arrived on time. Took root. The trunk is very thin and cannot survive without a support from outside.
I recently purchased an Ichi Ki Kei Niro (non astringent) Persimmon tree from Plant Me Green. Arrived in pristine condition already leafed out and was in the ground the next day. I’ve never seen a Persimmon tree here in Colorado so this is an experiment. So far so good; tree seems to be doing well. Although rated as cold-hardy through zone 6 (ours is a tenuous zone 6a), I will give it protection next winter. I’m happy with this purchase as I always am with everything I have ordered through the years from Plant Me Green. Quality nursery stock at reasonable prices and reliable customer service. Plant Me Green is one of my top three go-to online nurseries.
