How To Plant A Tree

Step 1

Before you start digging a hole, soak your tree in a plastic trug or bucket of water.

Step 2

Decide on the right spot, and dig a generous hole – it should be the same depth as the rootball. Enrich the soil with a few scoops of Gro-Sure Farmyard Manure.

Step 3

Using a cane, check that the rootball is level with the soil surface.

Step 4

Remove the tree from the pot and place it in the hole, keeping the tree trunk upright. Sprinkle a little Rootgrow Mycrorrhizal Fungi around for good root development.

Step 5

Re-fill the hole with soil, and firm the surface with your foot.

Step 6

Water well and add a mulch to prevent weeds and help retain moisture.
