Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Suitable for mass planting and for planting as a specimen in a container. Plant in any soil that doesn't get too dry. Use a good quality general purpose compost for container growing. New plants are best planted in early to mid-spring. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
