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.
