I bought a sago palm and there are no instructions on planting it with the tree. Can you tell me how to plant it? How deep, watering, ect...

Heather,
Mix compost into the soil throughout the planting area. Then dig a hole just as deep as the rootball or a little shallower. Plant the sago at or just a little higher than it was growing in the container soil mix. Water it in well and after that keep the soil moist but not soggy. Mulch the surface with leaves or pine straw. Start fertilizing lightly about 6 weeks after planting using a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro.
