Is the bush deer proof

Is the bush deer proof
Asked by: Don
Barbarry is rarely the first choice to eat for deer but people who have deer problems know a hungry deer will eat almost anything. So if they are a big issue in your area it it always a good idea to use repellents or another tactic to keep the deer out of your plants

Can I use garden soil to plant this?

Asked by: gardener
Yes! We recommend using a well drained garden soil mixed with you native soil to fill in around your plant. Also make sure to dig the hole out 2 to 3 times the size of the pot your plant arrived in so there will be plenty of lose soil for your new plant to spread its roots

WHY ARE ALL LEAVES FALLING FROM PLANT I PURCHASED VIA ONLINE HOMEDEPOT ??

Southern Living Plant Collection Model # 04332 Internet # 205849174 2 Gal. Orange Rocket Barberry I RECEIVED THIS PLANT AND WATERED AND PLANTED IT ACCORDING TO SPECIFICATIONS. THEN (2) DAYS LATER, I NOTICED LEAVES FALLEN INTO CONTAINER. Henceforth, leaves continue to fall from this plant. WHAT SHALL I DO ?
Asked by: mountainwoman
Your plant may be dropping leaves that were shaken and damaged during shipping. Your plant should stop shedding leaves within a few days and should begin showing signs of new growth in a few weeks.

Customer Reviews

2 Gal. Orange Rocket Barberry is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful colored bush I ordered the smaller 1 gal size because I know how perennials take off after 2-3 years so unless you're in a hurry, why spend the extra $. I ordered this because I have a hungry deer problem & they don't touch the barberries (no surprise there). The colors are great, changing with the seasons. I don't think this plant should be called orange though, it's more of a coral color but I still love it. I can only imagine the beauty when it is mature. Time will tell. It's already doubled in size since I got it this past spring. I fertilized it as recommended & kept it watered through this very hot, dry summer. It came healthy & continues to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful specimens! I was hesitant to purchase live plants online, but I needed (5) Orange Rocket Barberry and my local nurseries did not carry this kind. So I ordered them from Home Depot and kept my fingers crossed. I was absolutely amazed when the plants arrived. They are beautiful specimens and very healthy. I plan to purchase more from Home Depot, as they have a nice selection and stand behind the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dying plant Fast shipping and good packaging. However, it's now well into spring in Cali., not a single leaf has been seen on the plant. The branches turned dry and brown, there has been no sign of 'awakening' anywhere - compared to the ones I saw at a nursery - glorious with beautiful leaves and they started to bloom! I would not recommend this product.
