Hi, I'm Jessica Smith, the Blands Nursery in West Utah. Today we're talking all about trees and shrubs. Right now we're going to discuss how you buy trees online. First off, I don't want you buy them online, I want you to come to me. But if you're not, you don't live here in Utah and you want to actually try to buy something online, be aware, yes you can find some pretty good deals out there. But you have to put, you have to think for a minute, first off, you're getting probably a bareroot tree or a small tree to begin with and how it's shipped and handled in between the time that it leaves that nursery to the time that it gets to you, it may be, may not be handled in the proper way. So be a little cautious when buying from a nursery online and there's no reason why you can't but maybe see what their guarantee process, er guarantee practices are. Also check out what that nursery's guarantee is, when it gets to you it may be so damaged, make sure that they guarantee the shipping process for you. Then make sure that you're also planting at the right time of year, if it's bareroot it needs to be planted early in the spring before it gets warm before the hot summer months.
