Questions & Answers

Is the 2.5 quart about the same size as a one gallon ?

Asked by: ETR
The answer is yes & no! The size of a nursery 1 gallon pot is actually NOT 1 gallon! A 2.5 quart as indicated is actually a 1 gal. nursery pot (may not be even 2.5 qts.). Don't ask me why! I have been in the nursery business for far too many years to make any sense of this stupidity!

Do these plants come with the same guarantee as plants purchased in Home Depot stores?

Asked by: ETR
The answer is yes! I do not say this indiscriminately though... use common sense! If a plant arrives check both the root ball as well as the top of the plant. What to look for is "sturdy" new growth on top EVEN IF IT LOOKS UGLY! Next, inspect the root-ball when removed from the container. If there is a substantially greater amount of light-colored/whitish roots then you are ready to go. Your next step before transplanting is to carefully loosen the root-ball by teasing and cutting the roots (if necessary) to FLAY out the root system as much as possible. NEVER transplant a plant with a tightly wound root-ball. 90% of the time is destined to failure! Then when transplanting be sure to keep the crown (where the "trunk" begins and roots down below) at surface level or higher... exposing some of the thicker main roots is more desirable than burying the trunk below the surface. [Some plants actually benefit from burying the stem/trunk deeper... best case scenario... keep the crown elevated!] If after you have taken the necessary responsive behaviour as indicated above... indeed I would opt for the guarantee you are entitled to! There is always the case where a plant's condition upon arrival is destined to failure. I would give it your best shot unless it is totally obvious that your plant is a "rotten apple".

Will be delivered exactly like I see it in this picture?

Asked by: Mwall
The truth is... absolutely NO WAY! Nor would you really want it considering what this would entail! When ordering plants on-line it is a juggling act of appearance vs. viability of the plants! My experience with Home Depot so far has not been good because those who select the plants to ship apparently choose plants that may "look good" on top but do not have a viable root systems!!! What to look for is a plant that is "sturdy" on top with strong new growth (however ugly) and a root-ball that has a strong system of whitish main roots and a white fibrous network. Plants however root-bound they may be should never be totally brown throughout! They are ultimately destined for failure even for the experienced!

What are the other 3 plants in the picture with pumpkins in the shot. I would like to replicate the same look.
