1. Dig hole 6 inches larger than size of root ball. Set plant in hole so that top of root ball is level or slightly higher than existing grade. Never plant a tree low or put soil on top of the root ball.

2. Backfill with soil. On larger trees eliminate all air pockets by sticking hose into backfilled soil area, 6-8" deep several times in different spots around plant and compact soil firmly with foot.

3. Water once or twice a day, for first thirty days. Days 30-60, water every other day. Days 60-90, water every third day. Days 90-120, water twice per week.

4. Fertilize 30 days after planting. Sprinkle on top of root ball but away from trunk, and water in thoroughly. Fertilize four times a year, March, June, August and October. Don’t forget to grab our fertilizing instructions postcard.
