Hi! I am Suzann Harris and, I am talking about the Sustainable Gardening. In this clip, I am going to cover how to plant a plant.
Now to plant this small shrub, I have dug a hole that's approximately two to three times the width, that it is in the pot and about the same depth that it is in the pot. So, I have done that and now, I am ready to take the plant out of the pot.
Now, it's important to make sure is that it's not root bound. So, this a little bit root bound, it has roots surrounding the ball here. So, I'll take a stick knife and I loosen the roots, even cut through little bit and you see on the bottom, they're all tight there, so I'll loosen them so, that they will be on their way to the surrounding soil.
So, I get that well loosened then, I am ready to put it in the hole. Make sure that the level of the soil around the plant is about the same level as the surrounding ground and then stand back and make sure, this is a really where you want to plant that plant, and even make sure that it's facing the right way because every plant has a front and the back.
Now I am ready to fill in the hole. And here is the soil that came from the hole. I have just removed the rocks from it, and then I've added about 50-50, this compost kind of product, it's a high-quality soil improver. So, I've mixed that in here approximately 50-50.
So, then I fill the hole, tamp it down and put mulch all around it, and it's ready to be watered. And for watering, I use this is a soaker setting on this. You could also not use a nozzle, just the full force of the water and then I wait, let it sink in and do that one more time and new plants like this should be watered again in 24 hours, again in 48 hours and then weekly throughout the gardening season. In the next clip, I am going to show you what kind of maintenance the garden, like this, needs on a yearly basis.
