Planting season

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Young trees should be planted in their permanent position as soon as is practical. If they are large enough, at the end of their first growing season and certainly at the end of the second. Do not allow them to be grown in too shallow a container for any length of time. To plant, dig a hole about three times the width of the root ball and deep enough so that the top of the rootball is flush with the soil. Once the tree is placed in the hole, ensure it is straight before adding some of the soil to anchor it in place. Fill the hole with water, allowing it to absorb before adding organic matter and remaining soil. Tamp down lightly to eliminate any air pockets and add a layer of mulch to help retain moisture and keep out weeds.
