Plant my silverbell

Plant between October and the end of March but not during frost periods. Check that the desired location meets the requirements described in the description, and avoid working in soggy soil. Dig a hole two to three times as wide as the root ball of your tree. Handle the root ball carefully to keep it intact while you place it in the hole. Put your shrub to the correct height, adding a stake, and replace the soil, respecting the order of the layers of possible - bottom layer to top. Tamp regularly. After planting, pour two watering cans at the bottom, then place a good layer of mulch.

Water my silverbell

Water often in the first weeks. Water potted plants at least once a week, as soon as the top soil dries. Ultimately, if it does not rain for a month, consider watering.

Unprop my silverbell

Your tree should be well rooted after two years, so remove the stake now that it is not needed anymore.
