Doing Fine
Have had this in the ground and all is well. Plant arrived happy and healthy and is doing well through this Spring. Had to cage them as the deer will browse and horn them. Hopefully in a few years it will be bearing well. Just like my other trees from Stark. Am a real fan of the rooted in soil trees from Stark.
