My first tree

Today, I found my first tree, fruit trees are the hot item of the season this year.  I predicted this a few years ago when we went through such a huge financial crisis and I had developed my own garden in the back yard.   i digress.  So I went to country max today and found this sweet little tree - a Dwarf Bosc Pear.  Quite frankly, it's as cute as a button.  I was told to not get anything with fruit that might drop - I'll be sure to eat it before it hits the ground.  So as easy as this is made out to be.
1.  dig a hold twice the width
2.  Put the tree in the hole (with out the burlap sac)
3.  backfill the hole


Quite frankly it was not that easy, the whole tree fell apart as soon as it came out of the pot - ugh
