Planting and Care

  1. Dig holes or beds wide, not deep
  2. Lightly amend heavy clay or sandy soils with organic matter
  3. Gently remove plants from containers, keeping the root ball intact
  4. Loosen potting soil and roots around bottom and edges of root ball
  5. Plant level with surrounding soil, spreading roots outward
  6. Fill around roots with lightly amended native soil
  7. Water to settle soil around roots
  8. Cover the area with leaf or bark mulch 1 – 3 inches thick but not piled up onto the plant’s stem/trunk
  9. Water deeply



    1. Fast-growing herbaceous plants require more attention to watering than woody plants
    2. When possible, water in the morning to avoid promoting diseases from night watering
    3. Water slowly and deeply when plants begin to wilt and do not perk up at night
    4. Watering twice, a few minutes apart, helps water soak in deeper
    5. Soaker hoses and trickle or “drip” irrigation are very efficient and water-conservative
    6. Never overwater, or you may cause root problems
    7. Mulches help reduce water evaporation in hot or dry weather
    8. In dry climates, form a soil “ring” around plants to hold water longer
