Outstanding Bargain

Trees arrived well packaged with moist shredded paper inside plastic sleeve. Trees wee as advertised and already leafed out.

So far so good

The trees arrived in a dormant bare root condition that appears to be good. They are planted and we’ll see soon.

The Kousa Dofwood plants look great!

I have a large raised bed where a already planted 25 white dogwood bare root trees to let them "wake up" before transplanting them to their permanent homes.

I had space reserved for these , and was able to plant them the morning after they arrived. I am impressed with the careful packaging. and the dense root network. There are a few new leaves appearing.

My established dogwoods are just starting to develop leaf buds, so I conclude this was a good time to receive the order. I live north of Boston.

Is it alive?

Planted two weeks ago. Leaves were drooping/dry and have now fallen off. Is it still alive or did I plant too late? I planted (bare root) on the 21st of March in Atlanta GA.
