Planting and Care
PLANTING AND CARE - Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is parallel with the ground level. Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, use the excavated soil to back fill around the root ball, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. A 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, it will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth.

WATER - Water twice a week for the first growing season, once established rain water will suffice.
FERTILIZING – No need to fertilize right away, We fertilize our plants during the production phase with slow release fertilizer which can last an additional 2-3 months supplying residual nutrients to the plant. Once fertilizing is due, you may use a fertilizer formulated for outdoor plants, preferably a slow release fertilizer 180 days duration, fertilize during spring or fall base on label instructions.
PRUNING - Is not necessary, however you can prune to control width and height and form privacy screens or hedged between property lines. Create a living fence.
