Is your packaging recyclable? How is it packaged?

A majority of the packaging is recyclable.  There are however, 1 poly-bag per plant that encloses the nursery container to both retain moisture and prevent soil loss.

How soon do I need to plant my tree, shrub, etc?

We actually recommend giving it a few days to acclimate in a shady location before planting.  This allows the plant to recover from shock before introducing it to a new climate.  Here is a quick description that you can adjust for your needs.

Give it time to adjust

Before you plant your new Tree/Shrub, it's crucial to allow it a few days to adapt to its new environment.  We do however recommend planting it within the first 7 days of delivery. Here’s why:

  • Recovery Time: Transitioning from our nursery to your home can be a bit of a shock to your plant. A short acclimation period helps it recover and reduces stress.
  • Climate Adjustment: Every environment is unique. Giving your plant time to adjust to the local climate, humidity, and light conditions in a shady spot will set it up for better growth and health.

How to acclimate your plant

  • Keep the plant in its container and place it in a shady, sheltered area away from high winds.
  • Ensure it's watered adequately – the soil should be moist but not waterlogged.
  • Monitor the plant for any signs of distress and allow it to adjust for a few days before planting.

After a few days of acclimation, your plant will be better prepared to thrive in its new home for years to come.
