Planting Your Trees

 

Citrus Trees & Fruit Trees

  1. For optimum root environment, dig a hole twice the diameter of the root ball and equal to its depth. 
  2. Set the plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil level. 
  3. While adding soil to the hole, mix with water to replace any air pockets. 
  4. Construct a 4" water basin the size of the rootball.
  5. Add 2-3" of Mulch.  Place mulch inside the basin and away from the trunk.

**VERY IMPORTANT**

During the first growing season, keep the rootball evenly moist.  DO NOT ALLOW TO DRY! 

Fertilize 3-4 times a year!

 

Avocado Trees

Avocado trees should be  planted on high ground.  They need adequate water but need good drainage.  It is best to build a raised area at least 3' in diameter and about 1' high.  Once you have made this raised area, plant your tree in the middle.  You are forming a bowl within the raised area and planting your tree in that bowl.  When you are finished planting, the plant will be in a bowl with the graft just above the soil line at the bottom of the bowl.  Over the course of 18 months to 3 years, soil should slowly be added into the bowl until the graft is completely under ground, which will provide freeze protection.
