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.
My order arrived and met the delivery driver as his was handling the shipment box and that was a little rough!
After opening the box I noticed plant soil all throughout the box which had six trees individually packed. Inspection of the contents revealed three of the tree were not properly seal and all of their packing soil was gone!
I have since replanted them inside and we will see if they live to see spring.
I believe a final Quality Control check prior to sealing the shipment could have prevented this from taking place.
spring will tell, I have them in a cold greenhouse for now. I will plant them out in the spring when the weather moderates .
I should have submitted this review earlier, but my persimmon did not make it through the first summer. I'm not sure why. I was very careful in planting and used a nice mix of compost and garden soil to backfill. The apple trees I planted on the same day all did beautifully. . Maybe too much sun? I don't know. It was weird. It didn't go through a period where it looked unless or got discolored. It just up and died and turned into a stick after about two months in the ground.
Tree arrived quickly.
Buds are present
Very healthy looking young tree with 4 branches and leaves out. Unfortunately, I ordered it a little bit to soon for NY area, its still cold here and I have to keep it in enclosed porch for a little bit longer. Otherwise it is all good and I hope for the best for my little baby tree.
