    How long will it take until mature size?

    Apr 29, 2023, 12:32 PM

    Growth rate will vary, but 3-4 feet a year once established so approximately 5 years out.

    I live in deer country. Any precautions I should be taking with these plants?

    Mar 24, 2023, 09:01 AM

    You should cage or protect them somehow, they are not deer resistant. We sell two different products of deer repellent, Plant Saver or Plantskydd either one of them would be a great choice.

    Just wondering why your price for full speed a hedge is significantly lower than any other company I can find? Every other company has prices from 30. To 40. per 1-2 foot plants. Love your price but can’t help but be skeptical. Please advise. Thank you!

    Hello, we are selling a premium quart pot about 5" tall, which is about a 1 quart container. The plant size is about 10-12" above the pot. I am not sure what other pot size you were looking at to compare, but most pricing is based on the pot size, not height of tree. I would be happy to take an order for you if you need assistance.

Adaptable in terms of pH; best growth is in moderately moist, cool, fertile soils.

Does not strictly require pruning, though it does tolerate it well. Prune in spring before new growth begins.

Tolerates heat and drought once established. Very fast growing - space about 2.5' apart for a dense hedge.
