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

To encourage a vigorous and high yielding plum tree, thin the tree's fruit in May and again in July, removing the damaged and diseased fruit so that the rest have room to grow. Prune plum trees in the winter. Regularly remove suckers from around the base of the tree.

Two trees shipped separately. One arrived a day late due to delivery truck issue. Tree was heat stressed but has now recovered. Second tree arrived looking great. Both trees are thriving.

Ok, but late and tough delivery

Methley was planted 2 weeks ago even though he arrived late (3 days) and pretty beat up. He had 2 broken limbs and most of the dirt in the pot wasn't around his root ball I planted him anyway and is making a good recovery with new growth showing. I am satisfied with this tree and the hardiness at the recovery Methley is making.

Plumb tickled with plum 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.
