Does Not Ship To:
Combination orders: Orders containing a mix of bare root plants and potted plants will all ship together. If you have questions about shipping please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.
Bare root orders only: Bare root trees have to be dormant in order to be shipped. We will begin shipping directly after they are harvested. If everything goes according to schedule, bare root shipping will begin the last week in January.
We currently cannot ship to the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or US territories. We cannot ship trees internationally.
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.
I had hoped that it would not be quite so spindly and the trunk would be more developed. It needs a stack to stand up and not fall over. I put it in the ground, and we'll have to wait to see what happens in the spring.
I love my VITEX, within two weeks it bloomed!
I recently wrote a one star review because my Vitex did not survive after planting it. I spoke with a woman named Ashley in customer service and she was amazing! She spoke with me about my plant and then went ahead and sent me a replacement free of charge! I can gladly say the new Vitex I received is doing wonderful and isn't wilting at all! I would definitely recommend this company for any plants! They really care and want the customer to be happy!
