Specific Planting:

Plant any time in reasonable garden soil. Soak the roots prior to planting. Excavate a hole twice the size of the rootball and loosen the soil at the base. Add a handful of bonemeal or general fertilizer according to season. Position the plant at the center of the hole with the top of the rootball level with the soil surface. Backfill the hole firming the soil carefully around the roots. Finally, water in the plant thoroughly ensuring a good soil to root contact is made.
