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.
Both trees came in very poor condition. Leaves were red and brown. I am trying to safe my plants however I don’t think it’s possible.
New growth on both trees dried out. I’ve been contacting Plat Me Green seeking advice on how to proceed/give correct care and nobody has contacted me after 7 days of sending pictures and emails. Disappointed with this company.
I was very happy with the maturity of this plant. I transplanted it into a container and it is doing well!
The eucalyptus tree came with the top of the tree broken off. It has a good amount of leaves on the top section so we are bummed that we received it this way.
