The How, What, Where and When of Planting Trees and ShrubsSpring is a good time to plant trees and shrubs because they can take advantage of the moisture that Spring rains bring.
Where and how you plant is just as important as what you plant.
Site trees and shrubs to conditions that suit the plant and resist the temptation to put a tree or shrub in a certain place just because you like the spot.
Also, be sure to amend the soil properly.
Dig the hole twice as WIDE as the root ball and don't dig too deep. One of the biggest mistakes people make is planting a tree or shrub too deeply in the soil--literally suffocating it!
Follow simple rules and your trees and shrubs will be happy!
