- While transplanting a shrub from a container to the ground soil,
make sure the depth of the hole is at least 2 inches more than the
length of the plant root. Also, the soil at the bottom of the hole
must be softened a bit, to ensure the plant can grow smoothly.
- The soil that has been dug out of the hole and which will be used
to fill it up again after putting the plant inside the hole, must be
mixed with a little bit of peat moss and other nutrients to provide
the newly transplanted plant with extra dose of nourishment which is
helpful in its successful growth.
- While putting the plant inside the newly dug hole, it must be
held straight while the soil mixed with peat moss is filled inside
the hole. Mind it, if the plant is not held straight at this point
of time, it might lean down towards one side afterwards which is not
all good for proper growth and health of the plant.
- After sowing the plant, don't forget to form a heap of loose soil
around the plant, as this heap will be useful in retaining water and
helping the tree grow more firmly. Also, after the plant is
transferred from one place to another, it calls for sufficient water
supply during the initial days after being transferred. Hence, make
it a point to water the plant for at least 7-10 days regularly one
you've transferred the plant.

with their plantation. Regular trimming keeps the tree and shrub
look attractive and also does away with damaged leaves and branches.
Once you've trimmed the trees and shrubs, always remember to spray
the trimmed areas with a special pruning spray in order to keep the
harmful insects and pests away from the tree or the shrub.
