Red select Japanese maple tree
The tree arrived very healthy. It’s now the beginning of Autumn and it’s in the ground.
Hello, I planted the tree in a very large pot, so I won't have to worry about transplanting it for quite a while. So far it looks healthy and 'happy'. I have a question, what is the 'select' description mean? Thanks, Len Urso.
Very well packed. Fast shipping. Great customer service. Nice and healthy. Very reasonable prices. Highly recommend this nursery and will definitely do business with again.
Small but strong
Not sure yet it's only a one gallon plant and it was super small I'm still hoping that it's going to make it everything else I've ever gotten from you has been amazing but my suggestion would be to other people don't get one gallon they're too small get at least a 2 gallon or a 3 gallon plant anyway hopefully it well do good I will do another review again later
The tree is fine; however the bay-leaf tree is struggling and has few leaves. I was disappointed in the plant when it arrived. I could have returned it but decided not to do so.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Start by selecting an area with well-drained soil and the proper sunlight for your Red Select. In warmer climates, you will want to plant your tree in an area that receives some shade from the hot afternoon sun. From there, dig the hole slightly larger than the root system of the plant - 2 to 3 times the width and just as deep as the root ball.
Then, place the tree, backfill the hole and tamp down the soil as you proceed to cut back on any air pockets from forming. Water the planting site and then mulch to preserve soil moisture.
2. Watering: The “average” amount of water supplied to the most common lawn and garden plants should be adequate for your new Japanese Maple Tree. During the hot summer months, we recommend watering your Japanese Maple in the early morning or evening.
3. Fertilizing: Japanese Maples do not require large amounts of nutrients. But any recommended fertilization should use a balanced complete fertilizer for shrubs and trees. This should be applied once a year in early spring, and if possible, before the leaves appear.
4. Pruning: Your tree will need 2 to 3 years to become firmly established in your lawn or garden before you prune. After this period, you may begin to prune your tree if desired, although it's not required.
