After going to the garden tour in Charleston and seeing this tree in bloom, I knew I had to have one ! Never really order a tree of this size before to be shipped (6 to 7 ft) not sure how it would arrive. Even though the days for delivery were not correct ( I was told 2 days and it was a week) the tree was pre-pruned and well shaped, even had small blooms, which I was not expecting. I would order from this company again ! Thank You !

Peppermint Flowering Peach Tree
April 9, 2014
from Dayton, OH United States
Rating: 1. nice size, healthy
2. bare root (not my favorite way to receive a tree in spring.) 3. The root was not great, to be honest. It has two tap roots, both turning at a 90 degree angle the same direction next to one another. Cut at about 6-8" in lenth without many fibrous roots on them. So unless somewhere down the road this tree miraculously sends out a root in another direction, eventually this tree will likely fall over, probably as a larger tree with a wind shear. I've seen these before, it almost always happens....and the very short root will require me to keep an eye on it for the first season, regular watering and staking so the little roots can get a toe-hold. 4. I have to admit when I unpackaged this one my excitement quickly turned to dismay. I will be surprised if it makes it thru the first year, even if I baby it. I have hundreds of trees, not looking forward to trying to save this one. 7. You need to ship will a better root system or in a pot.
