Plant Preparation-If the root ball seems dry, soak it in a tub of water for approximately 30 minutes. If the root ball has burlap around it, remove the ties especially from around the stem of the plant. Both burlap and ties can totally be removed, if you choose to do so. Expose root ends by washing with a forceful stream from a hose, or by using a claw or some type if implement for removing the outer soil.

Planting- Dig a large enough hole to provide growth room. Plant the root ball level with the ground surface or slightly above. Water the area and complete filling the hole; water again. Do not put any granular fertilizer in the hole, with the exception of transplanter fertilizer. All granular fertilizers must be placed on top of the soil, around the drip-line of the plant, and watered in.
