How to use
Planting out: Water the plant thoroughly. Dig a hole twice as big as the root ball. Part fill the hole with a mix of 50% soil and 50% Levington® Rose, Tree and Shrub Compost. Ensure the plant is at the same level as in the pot. To provide stability for taller plants a stake may be hammered into the ground and the plant loosely tied to it. Fill in firmly and water.
Watering: For best results ensure that the soil around the plant does not dry out in the first seasons. To help conserve water around precious plants, apply a mulch, such as Levington Water Saving Bark. This will also suppress weeds.
Feeding: Levington® Rose, Tree and Shrub compost contains season long feed for the first season, no feeding is required. We recommend that plants are fed with Miracle-Gro® Rose and Shrub Plant Food, so that they continue to grow with abundance in the following seasons.
