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.
My baby Eastern redbud arrived looking good and healthy. I trimmed it slightly because the central leader looked shorter than the branches, but I'm not sure if that's necessary with a redbud. I wish it hadn't arrived on the weekend. I work a lot of weekends and it's easier for me to plant on a weekday. But overall, I'm very pleased.
Shipping was fast and the Tree came in great shape!! Will definitely by from here again
I received my Eastern Redbud tree about 2 weeks ago. It looks great! I have planted it according to instructions and it is doing great! Shipment was timely and great! I only buy my trees from this place! They are excellent!
Tree looks great just waiting to plant it, I have some landscaping to first before the cold weather sets in
When the tree arrived the leaves looked horrible and all fell off, but I still planted the tree. Omg! The tree has absolutely exploded with leaves since I’ve planted it. Every day I’m excited to check the growth progress. I will be a repeat customer
