Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Nikko Blue Hydrangea

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Nikko Blue Hydrangea .

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Nikko Blue Hydrangea gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Nikko Blue Hydrangea again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

We live in eastern North Carolina in Brunswick county. My question is "is it too late to plant these Hydrangea this summer?
Tony H on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: We did not receive our plants until July and they did very well for us. Our winter was rather harsh on them, but they both came back this spring and they're looking great.

how are the plants delivered?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2014
Best Answer: These plants are shipped in a pot, or if the pot is too big the root balls are wrapped in burlap. The roots are carefully packaged to create a mini green house effect in order to provide the plants with water and nutrients during transit. They're delivered via FedEx.

I just planted my Nantucket Blue Hydrangea and it was beautiful until the next day, now the leaves are drooping, they are not dry but they look like they are about to die, Please let me know if there is anything I can do to keep it?
Rosemary D on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: It's probably just experiencing some shipping shock. Plants will shed their leaves in order to protect themselves while transitioning to their new environment. Care for your Hydrangea as normal and give it about 3 weeks to perk up and improve.
