Shrubs

The plant must be removed from the container and planted with roots intact.  If there is danger of the earth falling away from the roots, carefully cut the pot away.  If the roots have spiraled in the container, pull them apart slightly before planting.

Azalea

Azaleas bloom earlier than most shrubs with trumpet-shaped flowers.  Fertilize monthly with 30-10-10.  Azaleas need little pruning, but, if needed do so after the plants has finished flowering.  Plant in a protected site and mulch well for winter.

Hedging

Determining how many plants needed for a hedge with 18″ spacing:

Measure the length of the area and divide by 3.  Multiply this number by 2 .

(Example: 30′ long /3  = 10 x 2 = 20 plants)

Dig a hole twice the size of the pot.  Follow the instructions for planting shrubs.
