Questions & Answers

How often do you water it ?

Asked by Goldie April 12, 2020
1
Answer

Depends how much rain you get. If it rains a few times during the week, no need to water it by your hose. If little natural rain, you water it for a few minutes, 3-4 times per week. Once the tree grows to about 4-5 feet you should not need to water it all it, except in extreme drought conditions.

What is the annual rate of growth

Asked by Brianna March 31, 2020

About 8 inches per year

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your item. These plants are shipped as bare root and will not have any soil, but are ready to be planted. Also, they are shipped dormant, so there will be little to no vegetative growth. We do try to communicate the state the plant will arrive by providing a picture of what the product may look like upon arrival. Remember, you may reach out directly to Home Depot's Customer Care Team for all types of assistance with your order. Just follow the links provided under Contact Us at HomeDepot.com

My tree order came quickly. Even though it was a single stem, the roots were intact and still moist. The stem had already started budding. After planting in a pot and kept inside, I had small leaves within two weeks. Will move outdoors when it is bigger and the weather warms up.
