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.
the tree is beautiful
The tree arrived slightly stressed. It arrived a day after the first tree, which was in beautiful shape. I am not sure if the order got split up or if the driver for some reason delivered both trees on the same day, but put one in the garage and one beside the garage. We didn’t find the Kanza tree until the day after we found the other one. The Kanza was planted right away, pruned back a bit, and I am hoping for the best. I am very pleased with the general healthy appearance if both trees.
Tree was well packed and arrived in good condition even in the middle of this heatwave. 10/10 would definitely order from this company again.
Tree was very nice and full of leaves. So far looks great!!!
The tree arrived in sad shape. Almost every branch had broken in shipping and it was very withered. I planted it right away. I see signs of green in it but just hoping it survives.
