Very Wet Areas
Provide an acidic, well-drained soil. Water regularly during the growing season to maintain a deep, extensive root system. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing; feed with an acidic fertilizer.
Dig hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. Place the plant into the new hole making sure that the top of the root ball is level with existing soil line. Fill in the hole, using planting mix at a ratio of 2 shovels native soil to 1 shovel planting mix (pack down soil around the root ball so that your soil doesn't settle). With extra soil make a well around the plant to retain water. Don't forget the Seaweed Extract, mix in 1 and ¼ ounces of extract to 1 gallon of water pour around base of plant. In three weeks retreat with Seaweed Extract.
Fertilizing During The Season:
You will want to fertilize in April, June, and September, we suggest Yum Yum its a great organic fertilizer designed for our soil. Don't forget to use a Winterizer or Yum Yum Winterizer in November and January to help promote vigorous root systems.
