Here is a Texas Sabal planting project. We go to hand pick the Sabals from the grower and get only the best. We do not allows our growers to pick and deliver material because you never know what is going to be delivered. Plus it’s fun to go hand pick material. If you enjoy plants it’s like being a kid in a candy store when you go to pick plants for a job.
For all project using material large and small the roots balls are inspected and loosened up as necessary prior to planting. This Sabal had the bottom loosened first and then the sides once it was in the hole.
