An Important Watering Tip

The new plants are all great plants and help bring home Diane's watering tip. It's important to have a saturated root ball. They have been watering these plants for 3 days but when they submerge the plant in a bucket of water one notices the bubbles vigorously rising up. That means the root ball was not saturated enough for planting. Soaking the root ball ensures that we get all of those fine little hair roots in the root ball totally saturated. Those hair roots are the ones that are responsible for water absorption and nutrient absorption which will be essential when this plant is put out in the landscape. Making sure it's totally hydrated provides the best shot for survival. That was a great tip, Diane.
