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.
Plants were clearly in a smaller container and recently transplanted to the larger one. They didn’t survive a week. Waste of money
So far so good. Many of the leaves fell on the first day in but I am not panicking just yet.
I planted it immediately - and have a green thumb. grew up on a farm. it immediately started losing leaves and is basically dead at this point. i believe i'm owed a replacement.
Persimmon Trees - Nikita's Gift (Astringent)
We've ordered a lot over the years from different nurseries, and this tree came in large, full, and ready to spring to life. And for a great price! My only wish is that they had more to choose from as we would love to order from them again.
