*Planting Instructions*
Once your plant arrives, its best practice to water it right away. Your plant may or may not experience leaf drop, show signs of stress or be in a dormant phase. Regardless, it just traveled a great journey to get to its new home, so  give it some time to accumlate! If planting in the ground, check your weather forecast to ensure frost or freezing tempreatures have passed for the year. Potting up into a larger pot can be done at any time.

Check the site and water requirements listed for each plant to have a good understanding of what your plant needs. Each garden is different, so don't be afraid to make a good decision based on your specific location.

To maximize yield and ensure a healthy life of your fruit tree, mulch around the drip line, topdress with compost, vermicpompost & organic matter regularly, use organic fertilizer high in nitrogen 2-3 times per year, garden with companion plants of cover crops, flowering plants and herbs! These straetgies are useful in container gardening as well.
