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 was so excited to see that I can get a new eucalyptus any time of the year!
My baby tree came extremely well packed and arrived quickly.
It is so healthy...I am surprising my daughter with one down in Tampa, Florida.
She will love this so much more than the flowers she received during her recent hospital stay...we love the earthy smell and that we can throw together a nice arrangement in minutes since it's right in the back yard..lol
P.S. Can we get customer care agent Olivia up on the board for employee of the month, she was so knowledgeable...and took time to answer all of my questions..I am a senior in VA and I love my baby 🎄 tree! Thank You Olivia!🤩 I WILL FOLLOW LATER WITH " BABY PICS"😁🇺🇸🕊️
I ordered a Austin and a Premier. To be fair the Austin was very nice and Im pleased with it. However the Premier is very small and very sickly. It's not even close to the example shown in the picture. Highly disappointed with the Premier and not sure if I will buy online again.
Blueberry - Premier (Rabbit Eye)
You read a lot about trees poorly shipped by companies/nurseries, but these came in great condition and were well protected.
I'm so excited to have a beautiful blueberry bush start so easily, and it arrived safe and healthy looking too.
