Growing in bad soil

Amazing! I ordered this tree end of March. I am in NY zone 6b. It was just a stick when it arrived. Barely any branches, no leaves. Basically looked like a stick my dog would play with. That scared me because I didn't see how this thing would grow into anything and it looked dead. It did have a root ball, so I decided to have some faith. I planted this tree in poor draining, not great soil. I dug a very large hole and filled with top soil, miracle grow, root rocket, holly tone and super thrive. I put a fence around it because I didn't want my dog to think it was a stick for him to play with. It is now May and OMG it is beautiful! Plenty of leaves, it's so pretty. My darling little tree. I can not wait to watch this tree grow. I specifically got this tree because the description says it will grow just about anywhere regardless of soil. I basically had a huge flat open yard that was mostly fill dirt. The sun is brutal in my man-made field. I planted this right in the middle to give shade. I really hope this tree continues to strive once its roots grow out of the hole I dug and into the fill dirt. I have really high hopes that it will. It is my favorite tree so far. I hope it grows super fast.

Soooo great!

I attempted to plant an oak last year and unfortunately it didn't make it. This year, my replacement tree is thriving! Such a beautiful tree!

Lovely little tree

This little tree is doing so well in its first spring! I planted it during a really hot summer and I was worried about it coming out of its dormancy but it’s doing so well and seems really happy

This is a replacement for

This is a replacement for one bought earlier in the year that I foolishly thought I could save. This tree does have leaves that are more green than brown so I'm hopeful. Yes, yes I did get the insurance on this tree.
