When to Plant Dwarf Trees Zone 9

You can plant dwarf trees in spring, fall, and winter in zone 9. Avoid planting trees in late spring and summer planting. The intense heat, sun, and drought can cause a newly planted tree a lot of stress. Zone 9 is a subtropical zone so winters tend to be very mild. This makes winter a great time to plant.

How to Plant Dwarf Trees Zone 9

Keep your potted dwarf tree watered well until you are able to plant it in the ground. Be sure to water the root ball thoroughly right before planting. The hole for your tree should be at least twice as wide as the root ball. When you place your dwarf tree in the hole the top of the root ball should be slightly visible above the existing soil line. This ensures you do not plant your tree too deeply. Backfill the soil around the root ball and gently tamp the soil down to remove any air pockets. Water deeply at the base of your new tree. Let your hose run for about 2 to 3 minutes to ensure there is ideal water penetration. Add 1 to 2 inches of mulch around your dwarf tree zone 9 to help keep the soil moist while your newly planted tree is establishing.
