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.
Arrived as promised, both on time/dormant and 5-6 feet tall with mature branching and well protected. Very impressed with shipping.
Packaging and delivery were very good. It is leafing out and looking good.
I was hesitant to order from an online garden company because of past experience. However, this company trees are excellent. The tree arrived packaged so well that no damage occurred during delivery. The tree was very healthy and better quality than seen in big box stores. I will definitely order from them again. Great job !
I received the tree quickly and well packaged. It is dormant and has no leaves at present, of course, because these trees go dormant in the winter. I have grown trees and plants that go dormant in the winter so I understand the process well. The tree does look nice and healthy and I am very happy that I got it along with a Hood Pear tree as a pollinator. I am looking forward to watching them leaf out in the springtime.
I was a little hesitant to order a tree from Florida but this tree looks amazing.
