  8. 24 Carolina Cherries installed so far - 15 to go 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Oct 2020

    We ordered 10 of these trees to start in June and planted them over a weekend. They have already grown about a foot. We planted them at 18" spacing because we want a hedge to grow fast and dense.
    In early October we ordered 14 more for the next section. This time we rented an auger to dig the holes - that was almost worse than digging with a shovel because there were a lot of roots that would cause the auger to grab - and then it literally pulls you off the ground - be careful if you do this.
    Now we have 24 trees in - they look awesome. The next section needed more prep - we sawcut the pool deck edge and built some small planters. Here we are going to order about 15 more of these trees to complete the hedge.
    I am really looking forward to having a wall of these across my backyard to block the neighbors.
    Don't hesitate to buy here - they deliver very quickly (although they won't put them where you want them ) and the plants are of good quality.
    Last year we bought 110 Japanese Boxwoods from here to build a hedge across the front of our yard - those have almost doubled in size

  10. Carolina Cherry's 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2020

    After researching many large nurseries and reviewing the reviews of Plant clearance I decided to try them. I am very happy I did. The plants arrived on the day I was advised they were being shipped and they are in great shape. The cost savings was huge! I will use plant clearance again in the future.
