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 arrived in wonderful packaging! Unpacked the tree from the shipping carton, and took the tree out of its growing container and I am concerned with the rood bound condition of the tree. Of the four pecan trees ordered from Plant Me green, this Ellis tree's roots are in the most compacted condition. So, instead of planting the root bound tree in the ground, I have planted the tree in a fifteen gallon fabric pot, with a quality potting medium, and hopefully giving the trees' roots a little grow room will encourage enough new growth for successful placement in my yard in about a year.
Trees come in cardboard box scurried nice the looks in good shape time will tell
As usual, good looking trees, friendly service!
Plant Me Green may not be the cheapest, but they are among the best. Trees always arrive well packed and in great shape. Survival rate of trees has been much better than other nurseries, which makes their trees a better value in the long run.
I have ordered from Plant Me Green several times before, and have always received what was advertised and was satisfied with what I received. The four "potted" pecan trees I ordered arrived looking fine; until I tried to plant them. When removing the first two trees from the pot, the potting "soil" (almost completely pine bark mulch) completely fell away from the roots. I was left with basically a bare-root tree in July. This happened with the first two trees. I didn't even attempt to plant the other two out of fear the same would happen to the others. Needless to say, both replanted trees are doing poorly and are already dropping leaves and appear on their way to dying despite my best efforts. I expected better. I've been planting and landscaping for over 20 years. Not happy. Just wasted over $100.
