This was what Burnt Ridge Nursery sent me... 2 look fine, but the other two look like they are dead (although i *think* i saw some new roots forming on one or both of them). Will they pull through?

Tsuga heterophylla (Western Hemlock)

They are going down, not up. Get your money back.

RE: Should I be worried?

Was my initial thought too... Why even send them?

Oh well... I'll give them a little time, but will be sure to get a refund.

RE: Should I be worried?

call them .. honey works better than flame throwing ..

put them on notice of potential failure

then plant them.. and see what happens ...

if they came out of a cooler .. harvested last fall ... they can simply be out of phase ...

i do see green on so they arent dead ...


RE: Should I be worried?

yeah..there were a few needles that hung on.. most of them just fell off.

RE: Should I be worried?

There two species of Tsuga heterophylla

On that is the coastal, and the inter mountain.

You want the inter mountain species for WI.

Hopefully that's what you have.
