Essentials for Success

For flourishing plants, use potting soil for potted plants or planting mix for garden beds paired with Root Zone starter fertilizer is the perfect duo to foster robust root growth and minimize transplant shock.

Care

Planting & Growing
Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil; shelter from drying winds. Avoid harsh afternoon sun exposures in hot summer areas. Mulch to keep root zone cool. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply slow-release fertilizer in early spring.
