    I'm not an experienced gardener, so if something survives in my hands, it must be good.

    These have to be some of the best bare root plants I have ever received.

    Small twigs with lots of buds, healthy roots

    Posted by Diane Kistner on Jan 20th 2020

    These bush cherries are definitely dormant but seem very healthy with no rotten roots or damage. I've read that the smaller bareroot offerings actually do better in the long run than the larger ones, so the size is not an issue for me, especially at the two-pack price. The twigs are about a foot long from the soil line, and the roots are ample. I planted all six in a grouping spaced about 5 feet apart, and I'm hoping they're going to be pretty when they get bigger.

    A bit early to actually say how they will be. Only been in the ground a couple weeks. Altho at least 2 of the 4 ordered have started to break dormancy. Ordered some last year and am impressed with their growth. I would imagine these will be just as good.

    These plants arrived in great shape and well packaged. This is my second time buying these cherry bushes. I planted some last year and they grew amazingly. Worth every penny!

    I'm impressed

    My cherry bushes arrived in great shape, the roots still very moist, leaves already started. They are growing and getting green.... And I have to say the sense of humor in sending someone named Nan a free nannyberry bush speaks to my sense of humor! And it's getting leaves, too, in less than a week in the ground!
