They look great, shipped beautifully. Sturdy and straight. I hope they take. They were soaked and planted, watered and mulched in. I’ll report back in the spring
Thank you for the healthy, well packed spicebush!
I received the bush and planted it the same day. I was surprised how big the bush was, of course it was in dormant state but it is a good sized bush and was a quality specimen. I can’t wait to see it grow this Spring.
I planted a spice bush in my yard back in 1996. Here in Nashville, it has withstood shade, standing water (flood), drought, full sun (after other trees came down), as well as hard freezes and days of 100+ degrees - what a trooper. I recently removed a lot of Japanese honeysuckle from a creek bank along my yard and am replacing it with a few spice bushes. I hope, like my old one, they will turn bright gold in the fall and become beautiful full bushes with deep roots. Just got them in the ground.
