Visits and Consults By Appointment Only

We are a working farm and would like to be prepared to receive guests.

What are your root-bag planting specs?

  • Hole width should be about one foot wider than the ball, and 10"–12" deep. If you are planting with an auger, the 30" is a suitable size.
  • The planting of the root-bag material requires that all covering material be removed from the ball before planting. This includes the removal of all rope, burlap, nylon bag and “cap” (white nylon on the bottom of the ball).
  • If the root-flare is not visible at the soil's surface, then a light shaving of the soil from the top of the ball is needed. This is done by using a shovel to remove the top inch or so of soil with a very light hand.
  • When the tree (or shrub) is placed in the hole, the top of the ball should rest 1 to 2 inches above the surface of the surrounding soil before the hole is filled. The ball with settle down into the hole on its own. This is to prevent it from being planted too deep.
  • Mulch should be spread around the tree (or shrub) in a ring that is 3 feet in diameter and 2 to 3 inches deep. Be sure that the mulch is evenly spread and avoid donuts and volcanoes. We recommend coarse mulch or wood chips; they work best and are usually easiest to find.
  • Watering is essential. After the plant is in the ground, it should be watered in, about 5 gallons; do this twice. After that, water 10–15 gallons a week for every week we don't get an inch of rain. Do this over the next 8 to 12 weeks during the growing season.
