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.

Hood pear tree

My Hood pear tree arrived in great shape, no damages to the box or pear tree. They weren’t joking when they said it was 5 feet tall 😃. I planted it in the ground and new leaves are starting to grow. Thank you PLANT ME GREEN I will be recommending you guys to family, friends and loved ones.

Best updates on shipping .large pear trees arrived excellent

I received large pear trees in really secure boxes. They were all potted and in excellent shape. Plant Me Green are the best on keeping you posted on your order and shipping

Very good

I received the tree quickly and well packaged. It is dormant and had no leaves, of course, because these trees go dormant in the winter. I have grown trees and plants that go dormant in the winter so I understand the process well. The tree does look nice and healthy and I am very happy that I got it along with a Pineapple Pear tree as a pollinator. I am looking forward to watching them leaf out in the springtime.
