Impressed!

This being my first order from Green Thumb I didn’t know what to expect. I mostly get puny half dead plants from the places I order from. The listing for my 2 American Sweetgum trees said 1-2 ft so I expected 2 sticks. What I got was two 5 ft trees in full leaf, and in burlap! I’ve never been so impressed with a mail order as I am with this one, thanks!

Sweet gum

The sweet gum tree arrived with all the leaves dried and brown so followed the planting instructions and time will tell if it survived or not

Waiting for results

After waiting several weeks, I received my sweet gum tree. It was a brown stick with a few little roots. I have kept it properly watered and used Carl Pool root activator.
Still just a brown stick.

I will continue to buy from this nursery.
