Today we will talk about how to plant trees and shrubs.
Spring is here and it is a great time to plant trees and shrubs. Here are a few steps for better success.
Start by digging a hole that is two times bigger than the root ball of the tree or shrub you want to plant. Next, set the tree or shrub in the hole making sure that the top of the root ball is 2-3 inches above the surrounding ground level. Mix 3.5 tablespoons of Ferti-lome Root Stimulator in one gallon of water. Apply this solution over the entire root ball of the tree or shrub. Do not get this solution on the leaves. Stoplight Market recommends using Cotton Burr Compost when filling the hole. Mix 1 part of compost to 5 parts of the dirt that you dug and fill the hole. Cotton Burr Compost will add organic matter to your soil which helps your tree or shrub root out faster. Once again make sure the top of the root ball is 2-3 inches above the surrounding grade.
Apply your choice of mulch around the tree. Mulch will reduce weed pressure around you newly planted tree or shrub, conserve water, and add a fresh look to your yard. Water in well.
Finally, if you are planting a tree, remember to stake it. Use two or three steel posts per tree and use galvanized wire along with pieces of old garden hose. Wrap a piece of garden hose around the trunk of the tree. Run the wire through hose and tie it to the steel post. Do not tie to tight. Remember to remove stakes one year after planting.
Stoplight Market stocks Ferti-lome Root Stimulator and Cotton Burr Compost. Our trees and shrubs have just arrived with more shipments to follow. Stop by and check out our great selection.
