Planting guide

Below is the brief planting guide we send home with customers.

Before you plant

Set pots in a shady spot and plant as soon as possible. Before planting, water the plants once a day. You can check the soil moisture by feeling the soil half an inch below the surface. Remove the biodegradable pot before planting. If the roots have grown through it, remove the pot by tearing or cutting.

Yard planting

You can use mulch to reduce watering and weeding. Water every day for the first week and every other day for the second week. Afterwards, water only if wilting. If deer are a problem, consider caging plants their first year.

Container planting

Use a large pot with drainage. Fill the pot with a soil-less potting mix. Watering needs will vary. Check the soil before watering. These native plants can survive the winter outside. Do not water in winter except in a long dry period. Fertilize your plants next spring. Follow the directions on your fertilizer package.
