Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Ulmus is very easy to grow, adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your tree the best start possible, we include a free fertilizer packet.

Interesting Notes

Princeton Elms were planted along Washington Road and another road in Princeton; most of these trees survive to this day [3] unaffected by disease. The cultivar was more recently chosen to replace elms killed by disease along Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House.

Customer Testimonials

Brian, just have to say that Colin was extremely nice & helpful when I placed my ordered & answered many questions. There is not an "excellent" choice in your survey questions or I would have chose that. I always look to Sooner first because of your friendly helpfulness, quality of plants, and superb packaging. As always, many thanks for all of it
