First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, dig a hole twice as wide and deep as the root system. 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. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a sucessful growth rate and productive life, plant your seddliings per the insturctions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Water thoroughly once weekly and fertilize 1-3 times during growing season.
