Care Guide

  • Watering: Water deeply once a week during the growing season (spring to fall).
  • Maintenance: Keep an eye out for pests like aphids or spider mites, and treat them promptly if necessary.
  • Pruning: Prune in early spring before new growth begins to shape the plant and maintain its size and shape. Remove up to 1/3 of the oldest stems to encourage new growth and maintain vigor.
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring before new growth begins. Alternatively, you can topdress the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to provide nutrients throughout the growing season.

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
