PREPLANTING PROTECTION


You should prepare your soil area for planting before buying your plants. If you buy plants before you have had a chance to do this, be ready to protect the plants until planting time. Most important is to protect the plants from drying. Place the plants in a partially shaded area protected from drying winds. Most nursery plants will dry out rapidly. Look at them each day and water them as needed. If it will be more than three or four days before you can install these plants, you need to provide additional protection for the roots. Cluster the plants close together and mulch the roots with compost, pine straw or rotted sawdust. This will help keep the plants moist until planting.
