Dig the hole wider and to the same depth as the bag The soil at the bottom of the hole can be improved by breaking it up and mixing in some topsoil (for aeration and root development). Carefully trim any roots bound around and under the rootball. Place tree in hole ensuring the top of the rootball is planted at the same level as the surrounding soil. Replace soil around rootball, firming up as the hole is refilled.
All trees should be staked preferably with two stakes beyond the rootball. Use something non abrasive (old bike tyre) to tie the tree to the stakes. Allow for a little movement in the wind as this will encourage root strength. Larger trees should have three or more stakes. All trees should be staked at least a year, longer for larger trees.
After planting, water with a bucket slowly or a dribbling hose. Initially, especially in the warmer months, water regularly, easing off as the roots grow into the surrounding soil, and the soil is damp. Be aware that in the heat of the summer, all newly established trees may require watering periodically. In winter a deciduous tree hardly requires any water but evergreens need to be monitored all year round.
Cover the root zone with 3-4 inches of mulch. This will help to keep the roots moist and weeds suppressed.
A slow release fertiliser can be used.
We have no control once the tree has left the nursery or the conditions the tree are to be planted in. Full responsibility is with the customer. If there are any issues with the tree we will be happy to advise you.
