Transplanting Trees and Shrubs

Next Tip

Previous Tip

Tips Index


When transplanting trees or shrubs, start by digging a hole twice the width and the same the depth of the root ball. Backfill the hole with the soil removed from the hole, adding only an organic soil amendment to lighten the soil if needed (No more than 1/4 to 1/3 of the backfill should be soil amendments). A timed release fertilizer (i.e. Fertilome StartNGro) should be added to the backfill mix when planting, but use be sure to use label rates. Be sure to plant tree or shrub at or slightly higher than the ground level because the soil surrounding the root ball will compact. Water thoroughly using a proper root stimulator solution (according to label rates) and cover with mulch to conserve moisture.
