My spruce tree order arrived Friday 4-17-15. I immediately got them healed in my garden, Planted them two days later. First bundle of 50, only had 29 trees in it.
as I was planting these trees, I noticed they were very dry toward the center of the bundle, almost brittle, and I was having needle drop. I did water them heavily for the two days they were in my garden. The 129 trees I got are planted, and we just got a lot of rain. hoping for the best.
I ordered 300 evergreens this year. They arrived late (according to Mother nature) and the weather was really too hot for planting. I lost about 20% of the trees within a few weeks. The trees looked good initially, but this year, the spring was too warm at the normal planting time.
