How To Plant A Pink Flowering Almond
Plant in hole twice as deep as the rootball and the same width. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for about 3 months while your new tree is establishing. Backfill the soil and add a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the tree. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease.
