General Plant Care:    Care for your shrubs includes monitoring for pests and diseases, periodically checking soil moisture, and providing fertilizer as needed. In general, plants that have sufficient water and the correct amount of fertilizer tend to not have as many pest and disease problems. Water new plants weekly during the growing season in the first year, and as needed after that.
General Planting Tips:    Trees do best when planted while dormant in fall or winter. Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Be sure to check how large your tree will be when fully grown, to avoid pruning chores or Dig a hole twice as wide but no deeper than the container. Remove tree from container and loosen roots slightly. Place the tree in the hole. Add soil back to the hole, ensuring the top of the soil from the container is even with the surrounding soil. Water well, and add more soil if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around tree, taking care to keep away from trunk. See our FAQ page for more details on Mulching. Staking is generally not needed or recommended, as it can prevent the tree from growing strong roots.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Use a general purpose fertilizer as indicated by a soil test and package instructions.
General Pruning suggestions:    If needed, prune in late winter or early spring to maintain size and shape. Do not remove more than 1/4 of the plant at any one time. It is best to selectively cut branches back to a natural fork in the branch. Shrubs look best when allowed to maintain their natural growth habit - avoid shearing into tight balls or squares.
