Schlabachs order arrived - very disappointed
I received my order from Schlabachs a week and a half early. Not great, but after re-arranging my schedule I was able to plant this past weekend. I opened up the boxes and much to my surprise ALL trees had broken dormancy and were growing inside the boxes. I cant imagine this is normal?? I wonder if the trees will make it or not or ???????
One asian pear had grown two new branches/shoots over an inch long. Sickly looking white spindly growth. Others were at varying degrees of bud swell. I also received root stocks that I did not order on. Asian pears were supposed to be Betulifolia, but were tagged as "seedling", the other on OHxFG 98. I wondered if seedling may be the Bet? I know old home farm garden is NOT bet. There were other issues like leaving out several items, other different rootstocks on apples and peaches. GRRRRRRRRR. Have others seen this type of thing from schlabachs? I am going to call them today and discuss this and ask for the items they left out.
