I love everything I buy from this company. The packaging is perfect. It is obvious to me that they take care of their plants. I will buy all my plants from them in the future.

Growing strong
I've had this tree a month. I planted it an hour after it arrived. It's about 3 feet tall with a bunch of little branches and leaves. Everything is still in tact and growing. I don't pay a lot of attention to it except to give it some water, and in a month it seems to have grown about 2 inches. I wish I could have bought a bigger one, but so far a great tree.

It's doing great!
I was very happy to find a smaller tree because I could only find the large ones that cost a couple hundred in the store. I put mine in a large pot for now so I can see where it likes to be.

Japanese Maple
Service was great but the Japanese Maple is very thin and is basically a long twig. I hope it lives.

I love Japanese Maples! If I had to do it over I would’ve purchased the $175 red Japanese maple at Home Depot that was 4’ wide and 4’ high and was so lush you couldn’t see through it. Instead, I paid $99 for a 5’ stick with 3 branches that had serious rub damage and leaves with significant pest damage. As stated in previous reviews I’ve written, all 3 trees I’ve purchased from this company has had pest damage and it’s due to the mild SC winter we had which is fine - but I don’t think they should charge as much for those trees.

I’ve managed to get this maple to produce new growth but it’s been a battle. I also bought several bushes from fast growing trees and they were all perfect and have significant growth in the month 8ve had them.
The branch was ripped at the seam but it has new growth so....
It’s been a battle but she’s producing new growth.

Don't know if its still alive
Had the tree for about 6 weeks now. When we got the tree ,we kept it inside in a sunny room. Within a few days thee leaves dried up. The soil was moist, not too wet , so water wasn't an issue. I will wait a few more weeks to see if there is any new growth

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Red Japanese Maple

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Red Japanese Maple.

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Red Japanese Maple 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 Red Japanese Maple again after the transplant is complete.
