Planting and Care
Planting and Care Guide
In Ground - 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.
Container Pot - White Indigo berry tree is container friendly and can thrive potted for years to come, do plan on repotting every 2 years to a 2-3 inch wider container.
LIGHT EXPOSURE - Outdoors thrives in shade, indoors bright light is recommended, a window exposure will suffix.
WATER - In ground water twice a week for the first growing season, once established rain water will suffice. Potted plants water every 5-6 days, increase frequency as plant matures.
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.
You may use a fertilizer formulated for indoor or outdoor tress, preferably a slow release fertilizer 180 days duration, fertilize during spring or fall base on label instructions.
PRUNNING is recommended to maintain desire shape, you may begin to prune at some point to keep the plant healthy and control the height.
INSECTS OR DESEASES - Here’s another plus, this tree is not regularly affected by pests, however in the event that scale, mealy bugs, or mites are found to affect the plant, they can be controlled by applying horticultural neem oil that can be sprayed directly onto the insects, A second and third treatment, when using oils, will be necessary. Space out the sprays at 2 weeks intervals to break up the mealybug life cycle.
