It died.
Gala arrived beautifully packed last year. I soaked the roots in water with root stimulator for six hours and prepared a 3' x3' hole mixing soil conditioner in with dirt. Dispite my application of compost and regular water i had to remove the dead stick that remained this spring. I bought a hardy almond from y'all to replace it and it is currently doing well.
