Planting a Tree

When you are planting a plant or tree, loosen the root ball. This will help the plant from being stunted.

Dig the hole for the plant twice as wide as the pot it came in, and the same depth as the pot.

When placing the plant in the hole, use the same dirt that you dug out to make the hole, to fill back in around the plant.

If you use rich potting soil, the plant’s root will have a hard time growing past the rich soil to the normal soil.

    Good tip on the plants – I never knew that before.

    I guess it makes sense since plants have used the regular ground since the beginning of time!


  2. Thanks Mary, I learned that from my Daddy who had a very green thumb.
