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.
