It's easy enough just to dig hole and put a plant into it right?. Well, not exactly. When you are planting a plant you have to understand how deep to dig that whole. How much soil amendments to add etc. Follow these tips for trees and shrubs and you should be good to go.
Soil amendment and growth amendment tips...
  • Compost Compost Compost is the best thing to ad to amend the soil. If you do not have any compost and are tight on budget then some potting soil mixed in with the ground dirt should do the trick.
  • You can add a growth amendment such as TRI_C Organics or Dr. Earth or Grow Power after you have planted the plant. Follow the directions that are given. This is not totally necessary if you are planting California natives.
  • Do you add mycorrhizae to the plant during planting? This depends on whether the nursery you bought the plants from adds it in when they grow or not. This is not 100% necessary but may be an option if needed.
The shrub planting diagram could also be used for trees.
