Customer Reviews & Photos
I ordered 3 crepe myrtles and they were delivered quickly and carefully protected in the boxes. We planted them the very next day and they are doing great and I'm looking forward to their first bloom. I will definitely order from this company again.
Fantastic Birthday Gift for My Mom!!!
My mom picked out what she wanted and boy is she happy!!! Fantastic gift for my mom’s birthday!!! Thank you!!!
So I was a bit skeptical ordering trees online but I decided to try it out and ordered two 6-7 ft trees - they arrived quickly at the end of March and were in perfect condition in the box. Now as they were still pretty dormant they looked like twigs with a couple of leaves (and I mean literally a couple) so I was a little concerned - however I followed the instructions and had bought the root fertilizer and soil mix which I used for each. Within days I started to see a little growth and some more leaves - we had an unusual amount of rain for San Diego for a few weeks so they got plenty of water - now the sun has started to shine regularly and the trees have filled out with so many leaves in the last week or so plus lots of buds forming - I am excited to see them bloom but for sure they have already grown and started to fill-out - it is quite remarkable to be honest - so super happy with these and as I said can't wait to see them bloom.
Faith in Nature!!
It was flawless! Can’t wait for the trees to grow an bloom!!
Tree arrived healthy, well packaged. Planted and seems to be doing well.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil. Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep.
Place your Natchez in the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk(s) of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Backfill and then mulch the area around the tree.
2. Watering: While establishing, Myrtles may need a bit more attention with watering during the hot summer season. Once they're established, they subsist on rainfall alone, but we recommend watering about once or twice weekly while they're young.
If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down for dryness.
3. Fertilizing: Your Natchez will benefit from a light application of a complete, balanced, slow-release fertilizer formula in the early spring and summer.
4. Pruning: Only a light pruning of the myrtle is needed to encourage plenty of blooms. Remove any dead and damaged branches, and prune back to about 4 or 5 strong trunks.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 7-10 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
