Planting Ornamentals (Container-Grown)

Length: 4:55

Planting the right way can be the difference in a plant's survival. All too often we quickly dig a hole, plop in the plant, then kick dirt around it. No wonder so many plants never survive their first season. The best way to get a new plant off to a healthy start is to base your practices on how that plant is packaged. Packaging influences the condition of the roots and the root-ball soil, which, in turn, affects how to plant properly. So even if you know the basics, there is a good chance you will learn a trick or two in this video about planting container-grown ornamentals to increase the odds your plants will thrive.
