Wax Myrtles

I have a project that will require a hedge of about 6 feet tall and 960 linear feet. The property already has wax myrtle used in another hedge, so for a consistent look we will plant the same. we will space these between 4-5 foot,
My question is, what do you like better container or b & b. This is over 200 trees that will have to be delivered about 100 miles from the nursery.

being your down on the coast you could go either way, a b&b is a better way to go here in the clay lands, because the soil type will match up better, but in your sandier soil nursery mix matches real well. I prefer b&b personally, ususally they're prettier plants and a bit wider than their containerized cousins, BUT also think how difficult it'll be to remove all those containers I'm think 15-20gal? anyways good time of year for B&B so good luck.

Significant difference in price too. Typically bnb is a lot cheaper. There also seems to be a higher failer rate on the bnb at least around here.

With 200 shrubs these should be considered.

Wax Myrtle

Thanks. The job will actually be done in late spring. I was thinking I would have to use 25 gal to get the size needed (6ft installed). The problem is with the handling 200 25 gal. plants is going to be alot of work. The nursery i use locally only has container plants, I going to try another nursery (Jerico Farms).

call skinners down in Jacksonville Fl. They might be able to hook you up given time. Good honest company from my personal experience.
