PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When placing your orders for potted tree/plants, please be aware that AS SOON as the potted trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!
There are several factors why we must ship immediately:
ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS
When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.
While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.
AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the potted tree/plants from their shipping box, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.
Semi-dwarf on Viking rootstock.
Popular nut, primarily grown in California. One of the first blooming fruit or nut trees and therefore susceptible to late frosts. Heavy yielding trees that grow best on well-drained, fertile soil. Low water requirement. Susceptible to brown rot, shot hole fungus, and navel orange worm. Almonds store extremely well. The trees are 1 year old and can be expected to fruit in their 4th year. Semi-dwarf tree on Viking rootstock, grows to 15'-20' without pruning. Viking is a vigorous, precocious tree, with nematode resistance similar to Nemaguard, productive, increases fruit size, shows tolerance of wet soil conditions.
Almonds are subject to desiccation, especially the buds, and should be protected from the wind and drying out. Use diluted white water-based latex paint and paint the tree to protect it from heat and sun damage.
