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

Plant peach trees in deep, well-drained, sandy soil and in an area with plenty of sunlight. Planting should be done in the spring. Prune once a year, removing vertical branches to encourage lateral growth.

Great customer service

So the shipper bounced my tree around and broke it practically in half. I contacted Plant Me Green and let them know. I sent pics and a video and they sent a new tree even bigger than the first. Both trees were clearly heathy and beautiful when shipped. I’m very happy with my Elbert’s peach and it’s doing very well.

The peach trees were wonderful. They were packed neatly and had no damage. They were easy to take out of the box. They were fully leaved with healthy trunks..

Healthy Trees

I ordered 3 different fruit trees from this site (this Early Elberta Peach tree included,) and all 3 trees arrived so lush and healthy. They were packaged very well to keep the plants from moving around too much. I planted these trees a couple of months ago, and each of the trees are still doing well. Highly recommend ordering from this company. Just be sure to pay attention to the weather in your area before you order them to make sure the temperature's appropriate for shipping.

Just peachy (peach trees)

this was a second order for me. I ordered nearly two dozen trees of various kinds in my first order. The service was excellent and trees arrived timely and in good condition. Some were taller than expected and they are all in the ground. I expect to order more in the fall.
