  • Tips for Plant Establishment

    �Establishment" means that new root growth eventuallyexceeds the weight and volume of the above-ground green vegetation. Successful establishment occurs when soil, light, fertility and moisture are managed and maintained through the first full season 
    of growth.

    You can plant in sprin, summer or fall - With proper care, you can plant our trays through the entire growing season.

    Soils and water - Pollinator plants grow on a wide range of soils, from sand to heavy clay, but they thrive when compost is lightly incorporated into the soil, and moisture is maintained in dry periods with mulch (such as well decayed bark). On sites that are sandy or drier, supplemental moisture should be provided for the first year when the 'soil finger test' indicates dry conditions in the top 2-3 inches of soil. If your soil is compact and resists absorption of water, use a small garden fork to gently loosen soil, mix in compost, and improve air and moisture penetration in the root zone. A diluted soluble fertilizer, high in phosphorous (e.g. 10-52-10), or bone meal mixedwell into the soil, will encourage root growth if applied during planting.

    Planting in hot weather -  When  planting  in  sunny, hot summer weather, temporary shading can greatly assistplant survival and establishment. Use cedar shingles pushed into the soil, wood scraps, or sheer fabric supported by small stakes (e.g. bamboo). Remove shading after a few days when the plant begins to grow.

    Pests - Rabbits and snails like young nursery plants; Blood meal powder or hardware cloth 
    enclosures can be used to protect during establishment. Snails can be hand- picked in early evening 
    and pickled in vinegar.
