How to Plant
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 the Heritage river birch, but did not receive it. Instead, I received the Dura heat river birch. The Dura heat river birch arrived in excellent condition.
Plants arrived promptly and in great shape. I'm leaving them in the pot on my sunny back porch to protect them from Japanese Beetles until planting in the fall. They're growing new leaves already.
this was a first order for me. I ordered nearly two dozen trees of various kinds.. The service was excellent and trees arrived timely and in good condition. Some were taller than expected and they are all in the ground. I placed a second order and was happy with it as well I expect to order more in the fall.
Plant arrived in great shape. It spent two days on our porch to acclimate. I then planted it according to your very clear and good instructions. It has been watered by both me and Mother Nature and is doing well. It will be interesting to see how it grows in comparison to the Dura Heat.
