3 DIY Installation tips
Prepare the proper planting hole
Plant high, inspect the roots and disturb when necessary. Eliminate air pockets where you can, add mulch and keep watering.
When will my plants grow?
Spring to autumn is the main growing season. The most vigorous growth of plants will be in the summer when the sun is up and out the longest.
Prepare the ground for planting
Adding organic matter in the form of compost or cow manure or using mulch is the best way to prepare soil for planting in your front yard
