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 worried because this crepe myrtle was a little delayed in reaching the birthday girl, and the weather was terribly hot that whole week, but she says it arrived in perfect condition. She was very happy with it.
this one also arrived in bad shape, time will tell
This was a gift and it arrived in Washington State in great condition. My sister was pleased that it was larger than expected. Thank you.
Our Crape Myrtle arrived quickly in good health. Planted it right away and it seems to be thriving.
I am very impressed with the size and health of the tree!!! I can’t wait to plant it!!! It was packed very well!!! I will definitely order from this company again.
