General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.
the tree has not leafed out yet but it arrived in beautiful condition and it came in a potted plant WITH dirt. I was happy it did not come in a sealed bag because sometimes too much moisture destroys the plant(s) and you can't revive them.
Trees are well branched (not just a whip!), nice graft, very sturdy and careful packaging. Ordered several more trees based on this order. Very happy customer!
Both trees arrived in excellent condition. beautiful branching (not a single whip!), excellent overall health. nice grafts. Looking forward to sitting under the dappled shade years from now.
The trees came in well protected packaging and were very healthy looking.
Nicely formed tree. Leafed out upon arrival in package. Thriving well so far.
