Here are the basic steps to successfully planting and transplanting successfully.

Remove the plant from its current location. It is very important to dig deep and wide. The more roots the more successful the transplant, with less transplant shock.

The bigger the plant, the wider and deeper you will need to dig. For trees, the tap root can go quite deep. Try to get as much of the tap root as reasonably possible.

While removing the plant, disturb as little as possible of the root system, but remove and covering or burlap. The more soil you take, the less likely you will break small, feeder roots.

DO NOT shake soil off the root system. While it makes it easier to move, it can break feeder roots.

Dig a hole in the new location. Make the hole about twice as big as the root system.

Mix our Organic Bumper Crop and Starter Food into the hole. (promotes healthy root growth)

Place the plant into the hole. Examine the bush or tree to determine which side looks best, and where you want to position it.

The bush or tree should be planted to soil depth level. Planting deeper does not help the plant establish and in many cases can harm it. (Rotting the main stem)

Begin to fill the hole with a mixture of garden soil, Bumper Crop and starter food. Keep the plant straight up while filling the hole.

After filling the hole, tap down...firmly, but not too hard on the soil. Tapping down too hard can break roots. If the soil sinks around the edges for the hole, more soil can be added.

Water thoroughly and deeply. Deeply water regularly. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated for at least 3-4 weeks. This helps roots to re-establish themselves.
