you know most of our trees come in do-it-yourself sizes?
If you can dig a hole 10-20" deep and 24-40" wide you can
easily plant a new tree. Just pre-dig the hole and have our delivery
service transport the tree to the hole. We will stand the tree up straight
and then all you need to do is remove some twine, burlap, and finish
backfilling. Some trees come in plastic containers which is even easier,
simply cut away the pot or gently pull off.
Don't forget the mix!
own formulation contains all the necessary nutrients for newly
installed plants without overstimulating top growth. All organic
compost from various sources for balanced feeding without
risk of burning. Our New England soil is pretty poor so we
add peat moss to help with clay as well as retain moisture.
Finally, we fortify the mix with microbes giving you a "living"
soil amendment which increases the plants ability to absorb
nutrients. Corliss Mix is like plant insurance and should
always be used when planting field grown nursery stock that
is in burlap. Field dug plants have most of their roots cut
off and will greatly benefit with its addition at time of
installation. It helps reduce stress and increases the speed
at which it recovers. If you are one of the few that has good
rich soil then you can skip it but for everybody else... "Don't
forget the mix!"
