Step 1:Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Step 2: Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Step 3: Water the plant in the hole and fill up hole with water. This will give the plant a chance to soak up moisture and also saturate the existing soil around the hole.
Step 4: Mix the potting soil and existing soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Step 5: Fertilize around your plant with 1 packet of fertilizer (if purchased). Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Step 6: Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 2-3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Step 7: Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical to plant survival. The third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
