All three mini-dwarf Necta-Zee’s look ok

I ordered three neck disease and each one came about two weeks apart. The first was the smallest the third was the tallest. The first one is just beginning to leave out and I’ve had it for about a month. There’s just a little bit of green on the buds. I’m fairly certain they will all be OK as they look like they are simply dormant and are just beginning to wake up

Great Little Dwarf Tree

The tree was delivered it good shape with only one snapped twig, and the rootstock is very well developed with a thick trunk and lots of roots. After only a week or two it's already leafing out!

Dwarf nectarine

Bare root nectarine tree arrived in beautiful shape. Roots were healthy and moist. I soaked it in water for about an hour then immediately planted it. This was just a few days ago, but so far so good.

Beautiful specimen

I am very pleased with the nectarine tree recently received. It has 3 main trunks and has already started to leaf out. Can hardly wait to taste the fruit.
