• General Planting Tips

• Pick an appropriate place to plant by following the instructions on the plant tag or a Down to Earth Team member.

• Dig a hole 2 times the width and the same depth as the root ball, mix about 2/3 existing soil with 1/3 Purple Cow Compost.

• Apply Bonide’s Root & Grow solution to the root ball as it is being backfilled with the compost/soil mixture. For trees and large shrubs use 1 gallon of diluted Root & Grow (3-1/2Tbsp per gal of water).

• For small shrubs and perennials use 1-3 pints of diluted Root & Grow (1-1/3tsp per pint of water).

• After planting thoroughly saturate root ball with additional water.

• Keep soil evenly moist throughout the growing season by watering when necessary. Test to see if you need to water by inserting your finger about two inches into the soil near the base of the plant. Water if no moisture is detected.

• Water with Root N Grow solution once every 4 weeks, and at the final watering of the season before the ground freezes.
