Arboreum trees arrived
Wow, what trees from Arboreum. They arrived yesterday and went into the ground this morning. I have never seen such strong root systems on any of the other 19 trees I own. Because Arboreum shipped them late, the trees have an eighth to a quarter of an inch of green leaf. There are also two faded blossoms; one on each tree. My 'Shui Mi Tao' and Early Crawford are now part of my collection. Three more trees arriving this week.
I gave each tree a gallon of water. Can I give them a light spray of immunox, captan and traizicide mixture? Their branches are at least a quarter of an inch thick. The only real surprise is how high up the graft is on the rootstock. Much higher than any other nursery thus far. Great trees and worth the wait! Mrs. G
