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 purchased two Bracken Brown Beauty Magnolia trees. The trees arrived in excellent condition: very healthy and packaged well. This was the first time that I have ordered from Plant Me Green, and what I received was the best quality trees that I have ever purchased over the internet -- and I have purchased many trees in the past. I look forward to purchasing more from this company.
Box arrived quickly an undamaged. With one issue the magnolia last a few inches taller then the box. When I opened the box I found that the leader was broken about 2 inches down. Being new to magnolia I am not sure how this will harm future growth and shape. The plant looks very healthy.
We ordered the Bracken's Brown Magnolia. The 2 foot tall tree arrived at my house within the given timeframe and just as I'd ordered it. There was a broken branch and a sliced leaf, but otherwise the tree was healthy and ready for planting. I would use Plant Me Green again.
This was the first plant I purchased from Simpsons Nursery and I was not disappointed. I purchased a tree in a #3 pot. The plant was very full, about 2 feet tall, and has a huge root system and some flower buds! This is a tree I cannot buy locally and I am happy I chose Plant Me Green (Simpsons) to fill my order. I received my plant a few days after I ordered it! I definitely want to purchase more plants from them.
Beautiful trees and great service
