Good deals,

Especially willows/poplar/cottonwood/birch/aspen. Water loving plants should be good too.

"Charlie Brown" Plants,

The nursery calls their damaged plant and trees "Charlie Brown Plants", yesterday I got 5 Charlie Brown trees for a total of $45, they are all 5 B&B trees (ball & burlap), so I had quite the truckload! Two Water Birches, Two Honeylocust, and One Maple. I also got a half price box of Plant Skid (SP), to repel the deer, I think it is only good on the ornamental s.

I got the two Water Birches planted down by the pond, the sand was plenty moist down even a few inches, so it made easy digging considering all the rocks.:) All I got done today was too unload the other three trees and water all 5 trees,,,,the last 3 were easy to water, I just turned the drip irrigation sprinklers on them, the two water birches I have been carrying water to with a bucket,,,which works out nice as a drip irrigation too, as it has a small leak in the bottom!:D

Good Deal

Wow Larry, you found a great deal!! Hopefully the damage is minimal, and they'll grow out of it. And you got some really nice trees, birches and honey locusts are some of my favorites.

So nice!

Thanks! They are pruned back heavily and should do OK, I know the 2 Honey Locusts and 2 Maples I got last year, under similar circumstances, have done well!

Whew!,,,Just one left to plant,,,

,,,then I will probably be foolish enough to get back to the nursery and see what else I can find!
I planted one Honey Locust Friday evening, and the Maple this morning, I can get back out there soon and get the other Locust planted while we have such a nice cool breeze!:)
