Bare rooted plants were planted when received but aren’t showing signs of leaves yet.🙏
Still hoping with continued attention they will come back. It’s been two weeks since I received them.

Two Out Of Three

Two of the three trees have budded out and have leaves. The third appears dead. It never showed any sign of life since it was planted. No green on a scratch test today on that tree.
