How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
About First Editions™
It’s beautiful, healthy, standing tall. I am so pleased. This is the second time I have purchased this plant from your company. I moved so I wanted to replace it.
The foliage for me is it’s biggest draw. When it matures, the flowers might change my mind. Thank you for such a well packaged, beautiful shrub/tree.
Plant seems to be adapting to new area. Looking good. Fall arriving soon which may change things. happy so far.
