Planting a Tree with Threaded

Should the tree be here or there?

Now it has been decided where to put the tree I find a spade and cut the turf using the pot as a guide.

After removing the turf, I dig a hole slightly wider,

And slightly deeper than the pot.

I test that the hole is indeed slightly wider and slightly deeper by sticking the tree in it.

As I have planted many, many trees it is, of course, perfect.

I put a shovel full of fresh soil in the bottom of the hole.

The tree is then removed from the pot, and placed in the hole.

Now I make sure the tree is upright by use of a spirit level, back fill with fresh soil and tamp down.

Now the tree receives its first watering in its new home.

Jobs a good 'un!
