Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

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.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Dwarf Radicans Gardenia can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Dwarf Radicans Gardenia

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Dwarf Radicans Gardenia.

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 Dwarf Radicans Gardenia 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 Dwarf Radicans Gardenia 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.

Can I prune Gardenia Bushes in June ?

Can I plant the gardenias in a large pot?
A shopper on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: I ordered one of these but was sent something totally different. When I called and sent them a picture of what they sent me, I was told they did not have these anymore and I would only be given a store credit to buy something else. So even though I did order one, I never received it. I was not very happy with the way they just sent me something I had not ordered instead of letting me know they were sold out of theo plant I had ordered. Not very good customer service.
