Planting and Care Tips for Coniferous Trees
Study the Plant Highlights on every product page to learn how to care for your preferred choice. Most of these trees like well-drained soil.
Conifers also require full sun to thrive. Most Conifers require careful, consistent supplemental water when first planted to establish themselves, but once established are tolerant of the harshest climates.
They usually don’t need pruning to maintain their classic shapes. In fact, we recommend you keep the lower limbs on your Coniferous trees whenever possible.
When you place your order, our team will hold it until the time is right for planting in your area. As soon as your tree ships, track your boxes to your doorstep.
Open them and give your new trees water. Dig a hole twice as wide as the root system, but no deeper.
For important landscape assets like Conifers, add Nature Hills Root Booster to your order. Use it during planting to give a life-long symbiotic support for the tiny feeder roots.
Fill the backfill soil around your tree, taking care to ensure the tree is straight. Press firmly and water to saturate the soil to eliminate air pockets.
Newly planted Conifer trees should be kept carefully hydrated the first year as the roots get established in your native soil. What's the Right Way to Water Your New Plants? >>
After the first season, it's a good idea to provide supplemental water during dry weather. As well, our team recommends that you water your evergreen plants in fall to help protect them overwinter.
