Kirstie's Tips

PLANTING

Soak bare-rooted trees or shrubs for about 30 minutes prior to planting. Give containerised plants a good water before taking them out of their pots.

Place the tree or shrub in the planting hole and position it so that the first flare of roots are level with the soil surface when planting is complete.

WATERING

Drought stress is common with newly planted trees and shrubs. Even in a cool, wet summer, the rain rarely replenishes soil moisture stores fully.

Watering aids can assist watering of newly planted trees such as irrigation tubes (biodegradable tree irrigation pipe made from potato starch is available) or watering bags such as Treegator
