Planting Instructions

  • Dig in your native soil a hole as deep and wide as the container. We recommend planting in native soil for best acclimation.
  • Fill the hole with water and thoroughly water the new plant; allow both to drain.
  • Gently place the plant on its side and remove the pot. Place your hand on the bottom of the plant and put it in the hole.
  • Return native soil around root ball, wetting and gently tamping down.
  • To complete, create a shallow trench around the base of the plant to contain the water when watering.
  • Mulch 1-2" deep around plant, avoiding area closest to stem.
