Perhaps the most precarious time in the lives of your new plants will be the first one or two growing seasons following installation. You have spent a lot of time and money making the proper selection of plants for your landscape. You have also taken the effort to plant them properly. Now, it is time to make sure that your plants have everything they need to survive by establishing a vigorous root system, thus avoiding transplant shock.

Before you take any serious action in your landscape, check with your state's land grant university's Cooperative Extension Service for the most current, appropriate, localized recommendations.
