We've lived in our home 30 years and my husband loved everything about our home. We raised our own beef and he had the best garden anywhere. Every year he said he would reduce the size of his garden, and every year he expanded it more. When he passed away in May 2018, I heard about Bio Urns and started looking - I was thrilled to find this site because of the wider variety of plants! Now they even have a Living Urn Indoors! That sounded great but I wanted to place my husband outdoors in the place he loved to be, his garden. We chose a Red Maple because I wanted the color but I also wanted a fast-growing, large-growing tree - we are surrounded by huge Pine Trees all around us. I want my husbands tree to be able to hold it's own in central Mississippi. I wanted a tree that would change colors in the fall, even if we don't get a cold snap. I am keeping my fingers crossed. Steve was very helpful in picking out a tree. Thank you Steve. The tree arrived yesterday and measured 28" and was firmly supported by a pole. Today I prepared the hole and when I took the tree out of the pot, I was pleasantly shocked by the roots! I was supposed to separate them, but this is a well rooted tree and even had 1 red leaf. Of course, it's too soon to tell, but it really should be able to survive as well rooted as it is. If you're on the fence, this is a #1 Site and will do all they can to help you in your hour of need.
