Planting Trees & Shrubs:

Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide.

Place the plant in the hole so that it is sitting at or above the same depth that it was previously growing (Use soil mark on trunk as a guide).

Add Espoma Organic Mushroom Compost Blend to the native soil so that the soil to backfill the hole is equal parts native soil and compost.

Add the appropriate amount of Bio-tone® Starter Plus.

Fill the hole with amended soil.  Pack firmly, soak it with water and allow to settle.  Add additional soil if needed.

Add mulch to conserve water and control weeds.  Keep well watered until plant is established.

Established Plants:

Add a ½ to 1“of Espoma Organic Mushroom Compost Blend on the soil surface around the plant.  Water thoroughly.
