Instructions for planting fruit trees
The best time to plant your tree is in early spring so it has the whole growing season to establish its root system.
Dig a hole the depth of your plant and twice as wide as your plant. Mix your dug up soil with the amended Special Blend Soil and use this mixture to fill back in around the root ball of your planting hole. Pack the soil in firmly ensuring no air holes or air pockets remain and water thoroughly.
It is good to set up a regular watering schedule the first year of planting to establish your new tree. A tree gator is a great option for those with busy schedules.
Keep away from children and pets. Harmful if ingested.
