What to Expect
Our bare root plants come with their roots packaged in wet paper wrapped in plastic. You can keep them in their packages for up to 7 days if you place them in a cool, shady, frost-free place like an unheated garage. Before you store the plants, open up their packages and make sure that the roots and packing material are moist. The packing material should feel like a wrung-out sponge. Check the moisture level of the packaging material every two days.
If you don't have an ideal place to store the plants in their packages or if you must wait for longer than 7 days to plant, then it is a good idea to heel your plants in.
How to Heel In Bare Root Trees
Ready to Plant
STEP 1: Take the trees out of the box and inspect the trees to make sure the main trunk did not snap and the roots are in good shape.
STEP 2: Our bare root plants come with their roots packaged in wet paper wrapped in plastic. Remove the plastic bag from around roots.
STEP 3: Soak the roots in a bucket/trough/bin etc. for 24 hours. It is important that the roots stay covered in water.
STEP 4: After a 24 hour soak, plant your trees in the ground. The hole should be double the width and as deep as the root system.
STEP 5: Spread out the dormant tree’s roots to encourage outward growth.
STEP 6: Keep the tree vertical in the planting hole (perpendicular to the ground) so that it grows straight.
STEP 7: Keep the graft union (the colored tape on the lower trunk) 2-3 inches above the ground.
STEP 8: Refill the hole with native soil (what was removed at digging time), and any other soil amendments.
STEP 9: Gently tamp out any air pockets from the soil once the planting hole is filled.
STEP 10: Thoroughly water your newly planted tree.

Growing nicely. Quick shipping.
I have ordered from Plant me green several times. Quick shipping, quality plants that grow well.
I only wish they could dig the holes for me. I'll be ordering again.
This is my second order of Zinner Pecans. I have never had this variety before. The first order was for larger bare root trees. This last order was for the reduced price small trees. I simply could not resist ordering four more trees. I was very well pleased with the larger trees, but simply delighted with the bargain trees! I couldn't ask for better trees. They are great.
My pre-ordered trees arrived in Feb., which was a good time for me to plant. Well packaged. All 15 trees looked great. Some looked like 2-3 yrs. old. Much better than I expected. Been planting them and looking forward to seeing leaves and growth next month. Thanks.
The box was one tough box good job . The tree is in good shape and starting to send out leafs thanks
