You want to pick your location site in as much full sun as possible. Grapes grow on vines and thus you will need a trellis or something for the vine to grow up and conceal. You want to plant each grapevine ten feet apart, so your post to the trellis can be 20 feet apart with a low guide wire at three foot high and the tall guide wire at five feet six inches.
When it comes to planting pecan trees, you want to choose a place that is not underneath power lines or structures. Also, plant bare-root pecan trees while they are dormant, which is usually December through March, as this puts the least amount of stress upon the tree and allows proper root development before the spring. You want to make sure your pecan tree stays hydrated, especially before planting; if it looks dry, soak it in water for a few hours to rehydrate it.
Planting Tips for Container and Balled and Burlap Plants
First, you want to select a location site to plant based upon the growing requirements of the plants. Once you have your location site, dig a hole three times the size of root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is two to three inches above the soil level.
Needle palm trees grow in a wide variety of locations–sun or shade, wet or dry–and will adapt to just about anywhere you need to plant them. Dig a hole that is three times the size of the root structure of the palm tree, and backfill with the native soil from the hole. You want to water the needle palm for the first few months regularly until established, depending on rainfall. You do not want fertilize at planting; instead wait six months and use a palm-specific fertilizer, which can be obtained from a local hardware store.
Make sure to keep your bare-root fruit tree or bare-root plant hydrated until the time that you are planning to plant. If you cannot plant the trees within a couple of days it is recommended to heal the plants in moist soil, but do not put the plant in water. You want to plant your fruit tree in full sun or as close to full sun as you can, for the best possible results.
You want to select a container that has a good size, as all the potting plants we sell grow large. You want to make sure the container has a hole in the bottom to allow for drainage, and you will want to put a plate underneath the pot to catch water runoff. Put about two inches of gravel at the bottom of the hole for drainage, and use a good soil that will allow for drainage and retain nutrients (usually a good Miracle-Gro potting soil will do). You want to measure depth so that the top of the plant’s root structure is two inches from the top of the plant, which prevents overflowing and allows fertilization.
Growing bamboo is easy and requires little maintenance. You want to dig the hole twice the size of the root structure and backfill with the native soil; do not use any soil amendments whatsoever. Pack the soil and water heavily to remove air pockets; if settling occurs then add more soil.
You want to plant when the blackberry vines are dormant: late fall through early spring. Both varieties we offer are erect thorny blackberry plants. Dig a hole just wide enough for the roots to be spread out and plant at the same depth at which it was planted at the nursery. Remove any air pockets by lightly tamping the soil. You want to space the plants about two feet apart with the rows twelve feet apart. Do not fertilize at planting or during the first year. The blackberry vines need to be irrigated the first year at a rate of one gallon per hour for two to four hours a day, depending on rainfall, and this would be with polydrip irrigation.
