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

Flowering cherry trees need 8 hours a day of direct sunlight and lots of water to thrive. Water regularly but avoid over-watering. A slow, long watering is the best. Flowering cherries need a 4 foot diameter of unobstructed space to grow in. In order to encourage a strong tree structure and vigorous growth, prune in late fall or winter.

Arrived in a very good condition

The plant arrived in a very good condition.
I didn’t expected it. Cause when I ordered from other suppliers, the plant always arrived like half dead.

But this one, when it comes, it’s still look so healthy & lively.

Definitely would recommend this to everyone

Exceeded expectations

Okame cherry a foot taller than what I paid for, and in great health. Only 6 days from order to dirt. It's now living quite happily in my front yard.

Hit and miss

I bought 2 olive trees and 2 flowering trees, and 3 weeks in I have to say the flowering trees (1 bare root and 1 potted) are performing nicely. 1 olive is well sculpted, but the second looks like it was grafted at an angle and the roots and truck meet at a 45 degree angle. I worry about what that means long term, but we will find out!
