Customer Reviews & Photos
So far so good
Only been in ground about a week and a half and seem to be doing well. I can’t to see how they progress this spring. Delivery was fast and the trees were in great shape. Liked them so much I ordered 2 trees for my moms yard
Great Addition to Our Georgia Home
Our Maple arrive a bit frazzled but as usual a bit of trimming and next day planting brought it to life. So far it appears to be doing well. There is some new growth...so fingers crossed...
Great no stress
October Glory Red Maple
Tree came packaged well, however, it lost most of its leaves. Noticed they are beginning to come back. Still a little early to know what it will do from this point but it does appear it is on it's way.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Though it's tolerant of soggy soils, October Glory prefers well-drained soil and full sun exposure (at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily). When you're ready to plant, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball and as deep. Plant the root ball in the hole and back fill with enriched, loose soil. Water thoroughly after the root ball has been established and place a layer of thick protective mulching over the top soil to control for weeds, pests, and suckers.
2. Watering: The October Glory Maple will appreciate a minimum of one and a half inches of water per week, whether from rainfall or irrigation. This translates to about one thorough watering from the garden hose each week (water for about 30 seconds to 1 minute).
3. Fertilizing: Use a slow release fertilizer in a 10-10-10 formula twice per month during the growing season. Cease fertilizing when the tree is nearing its dormancy stage.
