Before planting, keep the plant in a cool area and away from direct sunlight and water daily until planted. When moving the tree to the planting location, refrain from carrying the plant by the trunk or stem.
To prepare the hole: dig the hole twice as wide as the container size and 1-2” shallower. Add 1/3 Cotton Burr Compost or Soil Pep to the soil taken out of the hole and mix well. Be sure to bust up clay chunks!
