  • Avoid frosty conditions, where the ground is frozen
  • These saplings will require several years to mature

Positioning Trees

  • Plant in full sun or partial shade
  • Likes moist to well drained soils
  • Happy in acidic, neutral or alkaline soils
  • Prepare a large planting hole
  • Add rotted manure to the base of each hole - this will encourage stronger growth
  • When planting, hold plants at ground level & back fill the top soil
  • Ensure each plant is straight & soil is compacted in around it's root ball
  • Level off the soil around the plants
  • Support with medium sized tree stake for first 2 years
  • Spacing: 5m apart

After Care

  • Water regularly until plants establish
  • Water before & after planting
  • If dry weather persists, water every 2 days
  • Weeding is also essential - especially bind weed which can quickly smoother a young tree
  • Keep grass growth away from the base of trees to ensure a faster growth rate
  • Avoid strimming around the base of trees
