Taking care of newly planted outside plants during establishment is crucial. Here are some general rules for healthy newly planted plants:
Provide enough sunlight: Most plants need it. Ensure your plants get enough sunlight daily. Check for sunburn or low light.
To increase drainage and fertility, enrich soil with organic matter before planting. Root problems might result from waterlogged or poorly drained soil.
Plants need little fertilizer when first planted. Follow plant species recommendations and use a slow-release fertilizer during the growing season.
Very little pruning: Remove damaged or dead growth with limited trimming. Reduce plant stress during establishing.
Check for pests: Look for chewed or discolored leaves. Early detection and treatment avert bigger issues.
