I have 2 very healthy, growing well plants but have not even had any flowers, much less fruit, after 5 springs. I am ready to pull them out so I can devote the space to something that will produce.

Compared to what I have received in the past from other sellers, these plants are very healthy, decent sized, and packed very well. I have temporarily planted them in pots, as I prepare an ideal spot for them in my yard

I'm giving this tree a 3 rating because it is a pretty tree and takes pruning very well. After 4 yearsof flowering I still have never had an apricot. They have been well cared for organic fruit spikes plenty of water, the bees do their business of pollenating but there has never been any fruit.

I received my 2 Bush Apricot trees yesterday and all I can say was WOW and SUPPRISE! I am very please with the trees that I received in my mailbox.Both tree roots were wrap nice and they were about 18-24 inches tall. Now I have to go plant them. Looking forward to seeing the grow.Thank Michigan Bulb the long wait was worth the while. Waited for almost 3 months to get. But they came just in time.

Even though I live outside the recommended USDA hardiness range (zone 9b), I ordered the Bush Apricot from Michigan Bulb Co. to see if it can do well down here with lots of attention and TLC! Although it was the first time I ordered trees from this company, I was really impressed with the condition and quality of the plant I received. I've ordered trees from other online places before and received mostly whips and twigs with no branches instead of real trees. When I opened the package sent by Michigan Bulb Co. I was pleasantly surprised to see a nice starter tree with multiple branches and buds ready to sprout! I also received a Weeping Cherry and a Ruby Red Pie Cherry in my order, both plants in excellent condition as well. I'm so pleased with the Bush Apricot that I went ahead and ordered three more! I definitely recommend to give this tree a try. You won't be disappointed. Thank you, Michigan Bulb Co.!
