Planting and Maintenance Procedures

How To Plant 3 x 5 Pints:

  • Using a spade or plug planter, dig a hole approximately 2 1/2" - 3" deep.

  • Remove plant from the container.

  • Place plant in hole then pack the soil.

  • Water daily.

How to Plant Bare Roots:

  • Using a screw driver or spade, dig a small hole.

  • Remove root plant from the container.

  • Place root of plant into the hole DO NOT force it...the root needs to be straight NOT curved.

  • Cover with soil then water.

General Planting Information:

Ground preparation -
Till the top 12" of the area where plants are to be grown. The best way to improve soil is to add organic matter such as peat, compost or manure at a rate of 25% by volume into the planting area.

Fertilizing -
Incorporate a complete fertilizer like 10-10-10 into the soil at the time of planting. For maximum growth, a high nitrogen fertilizer like 16-4-8 should be applied every 4-6 weeks after planting, beginning in early spring through late summer. In early fall and winter, apply 5-10-15 at recommended rate.

Weed control -
For best results, incorporate a pre-emergent weed control into the planting area. Follow label instructions for the brand you choose. Be sure to check the label of the brand selected to assure applicability to the specific groundcover to be treated. Applying a heavy top mulch will greatly assist weed prevention and control and increase moisture retention.

For high quality landscape management at lower costs and higher profits, Classic Groundcovers recommends that you "Think Xeriscape." Xeriscaping simply means saving water outdoors. That means saving money and the environment.

The following guidelines are recommended to make your landscape more water efficient:

  1. Proper design and planting
  2. Practical turf areas
  3. Efficient irrigation
  4. Soil improvements
  5. Mulching
  6. Maintenance to reduce water needs
  7. Appropriate plant selection.
CARE ON DELIVERY: Upon delivery, immediately remove from boxes and water. Place outdoors or in a greenhouse in ideal growing conditions for the species. Plant when conditions are ideal. Plant bare root plants immediately. Plants in trays may be planted later, but must receive daily care, i.e. water and sunlight.
