Green Thumb Guide
Leaves are easily shredded by wind, so plant in a sheltered location. Follow a regular watering schedule to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.greenall-firmulch,giant-timber-bamboo,ebstone-organics-surestart,corona-174-pruning-lopper-24,greenall-organicpottingsoil
