Helping newly planted and transplanted trees, hedges and shrubs to establish

06/06/2021

These specimens need aftercare, during the period whilst they are extending their root systems, to a size where they can support themselves. This time is called establishing and when the specimen has a root system that requires no aftercare, this is known as established.

The length of the establishing phase is upto 5 years.

The aftercare is primarily watering, during spring and summer.

The Soil Biology should be encouraged by the re-application of mulch annually. As this composts down it feeds the Soil Food Web with organic matter.

Soil Biology can also be boosted by the drenching of the root system with a bespoke Compost Tea, that contains all of the good parts of the Soil Food Web, apart from worms and insects (which will migrate to this improved soil).
