Spring is planting season. That’s why container-grown shrubs do best when they are planted in the early spring. This is because the shrubs tend to still be dormant or just breaking through that period.
It’s important to plant as soon as the frost has left the ground. This will give the shrubs the most time to grow some new roots and settle in for the spring growing season.
To plant shrubs in the spring, you don’t need to dig a deep planting hole to encourage root growth. Most shrub roots spread widely, so focus on making a wider hole. Also, consider making a square hole because this gives the roots a better way to spread out.
Just before planting, try watering the container-grown shrubs with a liquid feed and soak the roots of bare-root shrubs in the liquid feed as well. This can also help protect the roots from any fungus or other issues.
