Suggestions for successful container planting:

1. Dig a hole slightly larger than the container size.
2. Fertilizer or bone meal may be added. Note: Some plants may not require fertilizer.
3. Mound soil around the plant to create a depression that will catch moisture.
4. ‘Water in’ after planting.
5. Establish a watering schedule for the first year to allow the root system to establish.
6. Maintain plants by weeding to keep invasive species such as Himalayan Blackberry out.
7. Monitor plants for browse.  If browse is excessive then apply a repellant.
