In my last post I described the right way to plant a tree or shrub. If you follow that process you will have success most of the time. Today, I’d like to look at a new method for planting trees that involves washing roots before planting.
Science does not stand still. Tree researchers are continually looking at ways to improve the planting process and in recent years a new way of handling the tree roots has come to light. It goes against everything that makes common sense, but it does seem to work. I have used the new method for a couple of years now on over 50 trees and I am quite happy with the results. Researchers have been testing the process for a much longer time.
