Planting and plant care instructions.

Here are five key points for planting a native plant guide and some basic instructions:

Prepare the planting area: Clear the planting area of any weeds, grass, or debris. Loosen the soil using a garden fork or tiller to promote healthy root growth. Remove any rocks, roots, or large clumps of soil that may hinder proper plant development.

Amend the soil if necessary: If needed, amend the soil with organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, to improve drainage and fertility.

Dig the planting hole: Dig a hole that is slightly wider and deeper than the plant's root ball or container. Gently remove the plant from its container, being careful not to damage the roots. Place the plant in the hole, ensuring that it sits at the same depth as it was in the container.

Backfill and water: Fill the hole with soil, gently patting it down around the plant to eliminate air pockets. Water thoroughly to settle the soil and ensure good root-to-soil contact. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture, regulate temperature, and suppress weeds.

Provide ongoing care: Native plants often require minimal maintenance once established, but regular watering, especially during the first year, is crucial for their survival. Monitor the soil moisture, and water as needed, focusing on the plant's root zone.
