Purchased a tree rated at zone 5 on their website. Tree died during the winter, so was obviously not a zone 5. They refused to do anything, and took no responsibility for their faulty posting. Would not do business with again.
On August 31st, 2017, Canarykeeper added the following:
They also listed a Variegated Mulberry tree as zone 5. It also died during the winter. Everyone else lists it as zone 6 or 7. Again, this company makes excuses. They need to check planting zones better. And there is also zone 5a and 5b. 5b will not survive a 5a winter. My fault for trusting them.
Never again, as they don\'t really have a guarantee. On August 31st, 2017, Canarykeeper added the following:
And now they have the paper dolls mulberry tree as a zone 4. And to add to my previous post, I planted the trees in the fall because the company did not have them for sale until then. They were in the ground about 1 month before winter set in. And I can't report them dead until the following Sping (7 months later). And they question that? Unbelievable! And they gave themselves a positive rating here.
And I don't have rodents here because of the outdoor cats.
IA is known for its soil, so not a problem either. Plenty of rain/snow the entire winter. I protected both trees with lots of mulch and burlap, and the winter got down to -18 F. Trees died due to the cold. The end.
