so far so good

I planted in the heat of the summer in dry Central Texas and that is a big no according to the area Green Thumb know it all's. Well I have kept all the trees and plants I purchased damp with daily watering and there doing extremely well. I'm sure it has allot to do with the high quality product you offer as I have done the same thing with other suppliers and lost but these ones are great. Thank You TIM MILLER

The New leaves grow

I was forward-looking at crape Myrtle tree since it appears to grow new leaves for three weeks as it seems a success.


Planting & Care

1. Planting: Select a site with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).

Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the Tonto Crape Myrtle into the hole, ensuring it is standing straight. Backfill the soil, water to settle the roots, and apply a layer of mulch around your tree to help retain moisture.

2. Watering: Water your young tree up to three times a week during the first growing season. Once your tree is established, it will only need watering in times of extreme drought with no rainfall.

If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down. When the soil is dry here, water your Tonto Crape.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your tree in the spring before new growth begins. A light application of 5-10-5 fertilizer is best.

4. Pruning: Watch for any leaves emerging from the base of the tree and remove promptly. To promote good air circulation, thin out young trees to 3 to 4 main branches and remove any dead or twiggy branches. Prune in late winter, before new growth begins.
