Planting Guide

Quick Steps for Planting

  • Prior to planting, consider the location and soil type best suited to this species of plant
  • Prepare a hole twice the size of the bag
  • Slit the bag right around the base, and pull flap open
  • Place the tree, still in the bag, into the hole
  • Let the tree ease out through the open bag into the hole
  • Remove the bag by lifting it up over the tree, or cut it down the sides
  • Stabilise the tree into the soil, but not too hard
  • Add stakes and a windbreak if necessary
  • Tie the tree to the stakes
  • Water and mulch the plant
