    • Water thoroughly after planting, then daily as needed until plants are established.

  • Planting Trees & Shrubs
    • Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide.
    • Place the plant in the hole so that it is sitting at or above the same depth that it was previously growing (Use soil mark on trunk as a guide).
    • Add Espoma® Organic Land & Sea Gourmet Compost to the native soil so that the soil to backfill the hole is equal parts native soil and compost.

    • Fill the hole with amended soil. Pack firmly, soak it with water and allow to settle. Add additional soil if needed.
