At Planting Time

Planting instructions
  • Soak shrubs in a bucket of water up to 24 hours before planting.
  • Plant as soon as possible to help reduce transplant shock and to enure success.

Planting

  • Dig holes shallow and wide. The hole should be no deeper than the lon- gest root at the bottom and 2-3 times wider than the entire root mass.
  • Begin backfilling with soil, tamping down around the roots to eliminate air pockets.
  • Soil level should be up to the area where the branching starts at the base of the stem.
  • Water througly.
  • Mulch plants to help keep moisture in the soil and control weeds as well. Keep the mulch away from the base of the plant by 1 inch.
  • Give the new plant a deep soaking once a week for the first growing season.
