  • Planting Instructions:

    It is better to dig the hole wider than deeper. Digging deeper than the root ball depth causes the plant to settle. The width of the planting hole should be two to five times the diameter of the root ball. This loose soil around the root ball allows for quick root growth into the soil from the root ball. When backfilling, do not stomp the soil, as this causes compaction and slows root growth. Either lightly firm the soil or allow water to naturally settle the soil.

  • Care of your new tree/shrub: Thoroughly and gently water your new tree or shrub the first 3-5 days. After that, thoroughly water at least once/week as conditions demand.
