Customer Reviews & Photos
Very pleased with these plants
Plants arrived in a timely manner and were packaged very well. They looked great and even had new growth on them. We planted them and so far they are doing great. So much better than the bare root plants we tried from another vendor. We were never able to get them to grow.
So far so good
Just put them in a few weeks ago they look good so far. I intend to buy a dozen or so more next year to extend the hedge further.
Planted 15 canadian hemlocks as a natural fence on my property line. iPlanted them last spring. Had to replace 4 because of winter damage. All plants are growing rapidly. Looks like it won't take long before I have a nice natural fence line
Hemlock doing beautifully
Every one of the five trees already have new growth. I couldn't ask for anything more. They're beautiful.
I've had my hemlock planted for two years now and I just had to come write a review. I love this tree. It's beautiful and so fast growing. I have ordered loads of shrubs and trees from fast growing and they always arrive in great condition.
