A Step-by-Step Guide to Planting and Growing Healthy Plants

Here’s what you will need: a shovel, hose, fertilizer, planting soil, and mulch.

Step 1

Unpack your plants right away! They need sunlight and water to survive.

Step 2

Check how much sun your plant likes to receive before choosing a location for planting.

Step 3

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the middle of the hole and make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than surrounding ground.

Step 4

Fill the hole with water. Do not use any hose attachments or sprayers.

Step 5

Mix soil removed from the hole with planting soil and back fill around the root ball. Carefully pack the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again!

Step 6

Fertilize around your plant with Root Rocket. Our special fertilizer has all of the nutrients to keep your plant growing and healthy. Repeat every 6 months.

Step 7

Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply up to 1-2” of mulch around the plant. Mulch will keep the soil moist and keep weeds out. Do not make any funnels or mounds with the mulch.

Step 8

When watering, do not use any attachments and always water at the base of the plant.

Week 1: water 5-10 minutes daily

Week 2: 5-10 minutes 4x per week
