    i brought 5 of these (2 months ago & soaked them before planting) but only 3 showed any signs of life & when they do they grow VERY slowly like they are struggling.. Seeing as i need many of the yoshino`s to make a groove i ordered 3 more and NONE of them grew! Ive wasted months babying these tree trunks that arrive severely chopped off at the tops and the thicker roots have been pared off. I wish HD would be get better quality trees from somewhere else like they used too. Online Orchards do not reply to questions. Hoping too much time hasn`t gone by so i can return them. READ THE REVIEWS FOLKS!

      When I opened the box I was shocked to see how small the tree was. It was a dried out looking tree branch. I planted it and followed the directions. The tree/ branch never grew or had any leaves sprout. I gave it a year and nothing happened. When I reached out to the nursery who supplied the branch I got no response. I should be entitled to a refund. Do not waste your money and time.

        So far so good!!
        This was my first time purchasing a plant or tree online for home delivery and was unsure how it was going to be shipped. Basically I received a stem and rootball in a box. I am not a gardening expert so this was all new to me. I planted the tree a day after I received it and so far the tree looks like it is in good shape. I am still waiting for the first leaves after one week

        Do Not Buy
        I purchased two trees and both were cut off at the top and only had a few limbs and leaves. I am not a tree expert but thought something didn't look right. I have never seen a tree cut off at the top for sale at an nursery or store. I showed the picture to a friend who is an urban forester and landscape architect, they informed me that trees should not be cut off at the top like that and was extremely surprised that any company would sell a tree like that. Lessons learned. Do not buy trees online.

          Not enough roots they did not trimming the tree right he has growth on one side only is best for the tree to be small to make sure it's straight and trim properly if not tree will not be straight and will be bent or slanted

          I planted this bare root tree two months ago, in July. I water it twice a day for 30 minutes. I'm not sure if it will come back in the spring. It had a few green leaves when it arrived. They turned brown and fell off. I would suggest buying a more established tree instead of this one
