- Keep plants in a cool, shady area.
- Cover rootballs of unpotted plants with wet burlap to reduce drying.
- Plant as soon as possible.
How to Plant Trees & Shrubs
- Dig a hole the same height and 3 times the width of the rootball.
- Prepare a mixture of 80% garden soil and 20% Sea Soil.
- Place enough mixture in bottom of the hole to bring the rootball to just below ground level; firm to remove air pockets. NEVER plant a tree deeper than it is in the pot!
- Determine the appropriate amount of Myke to use, and apply to the rootball prior to planting.
- Place plant in hole.
- Fill hole with remaining soil mixture, and firm to remove air pockets.
- Leave a slight depression around plant and water in.
- Add a shallow layer of mulch: bark, pine cones, rocks or wood chips, to help retain soil moisture. Do not put near base of trunk.
- Begin fertilizing with Nature's Source 4 weeks after the tree has been planted.
Watering & First Growing Season Care
- Water all trees and shrubs at least twice a week for the first growing season.
- Fill the diked area with water (5 litres per 30 centimetres [1 gallon per foot] of growth).
- If the water is thoroughly absorbed in less than ½ hour, repeat the watering.
- If the soil remains very wet between waterings, reduce the water volume by ½, but maintain the same weekly schedule.
- Fertilize with Nature's Source Plant Food once a month until the end of July.
