Plants received in good order Wednesday afternoon via UPS. Went into ground (along with compost, peat & Healthy Start organic 3-4-3 fertilizer) & mulched on Thursday. It's only Friday. There are showers today here on L.I. (zone 7) in N.Y. Perfect for newly planted material. It's early in the season, the first of April, & these plants have a long way to go before they provide the living green screen that I'm anticipating. They appear healthy. I'm hopeful that they'll flourish. Thank you.
