Place your trees in a space that gets about 4-6 hours of sun each day. Many of the tree species in your Pocket Nursery like a lot of sun – so putting your pocket in a shady area may result in unhappy trees.
Water them weekly (& sometimes more)! Newly heeled in trees are working to establish their roots & need ample water to do so. We recommend about 5 gallons per week for the Pocket Nursery, or about 1 inch of rain. Use your Trees Lexington! rain gauge to keep track of weekly rainfall – this will help you determine whether or not to water.
Love your tree babies & share in the joy of the growing process! Being a tree parent provides great returns. Not only are you providing an environmental service to the community, but you are getting to watch the beginning of the magical, transformative process that a tree undergoes during its growth & establishment.
