    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Kentucky Coffeetree


Kentucky Coffeetree Planting Diretions

 

The Kentucky Coffee can be planted in any soil condition as long as it's in a location that receives full sun. Plant in a hole twice as wide, though just as deep as the root ball. Mulch around the canopy, but not near the trunk. The mulch will help the tree maintain moisture. Plant away from power lines, structures, sidewalks and sewer lines.

 

Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth.
