QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • What sized pot for a mature tree?

    A 27 dry gallon pot works well (a half wine barrel for example).

  • Im in Zone 5a - can I bring this tree into my garage away from harsh winds? or does it have to be inside my home? Thanks!

    These trees do well long term in (large) containers so they are a good candidate for moving around. This tree will not survive outside in Zone 5 so you would need to bring it in for the winter.

  • Can this plant stay outdoors in zone 7 during winter?

    Yes, but it may suffer from Peach Leaf Curl if you have it in your area.

  • Can I grow this variety in a pot in Zone 8b/9a? (Seattle area)

    Yes, it can be container grown.

  • Could I grow this variety in a pot in zone 5? and have it fruit?

    Only if it was brought indoors for the winter, this plant will not survive outside in zone 5

Beautiful and well cared for

My tree arrived in great shape, about 2 feet tall and with buds ready to bloom. I was able to get it planted same day and it's already starting to bloom.

Very pleased

I've purchased bare root trees in the past. This came expertly wrapped and labeled and the branches were forming buds. It's been well cared for and I see no I'm plan to make more purchases

Great Tree

I am very happy with my 7 yr old tree that has large fruit and is planted under an eave. This spot protects the tree & does not have fire blight.I am buying another as a gift.
