  1. Hard to review as it has only just gone in the ground 4

    Tree arrived, well packed. So well packed it was actually very hard to cut the clingfilm type wrap open for fear of damaging the tree. There were no instructions re depth of planting etc, so I guessed at what it out to be. Some instructions would have been nice. It will be easier to review by summer I expect. But certainly well wrapped and delivery company followed instructions. Thank you
