(Using Harris Neem Oil concentrate I sprayed entire plant including stems & leaves both front and back. Also used same concentrate to drench the roots (using about 2-3 cups for the drench)
klc210 On October 23, 2022 Transplanted
Took plant out of the container it was purchased inside. Put along backyard fence next to Caroline Raspberry.
(Dug hole, broke up dirt (clay) on sides and botttom of hole with the shovel. Put a thin layer of new dirt (2 bags of Miracle Grow garden soil & 1 bag of black cow manure mixed) at bottom of hole. Took the grass from digging the hole and broke & ripped it up then put on bottom of hole. this was for the organic matter that I found mentioned with planting instructions. I then finished filling the hole with the dirt mixture pressing down slightly to avoid empty spaces around roots. When the hole was halfway full with the plant stabalized I poured Bonide Root & Grow Concentrate, a root stimulator and plant starter, all over the roots making sure I didnt miss any. when possible I dunked the roots into the liquid then poured it onto the roots.)
