Planting Advice for Tilia cordata 'Golden Sunset' Trees

Our pot grown Lime trees can be planted at any time of the year. Dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and approximately 2x as wide, then remove the surrounding weeds and grass.To help the tree establish more effectively, sprinkle root grow in the hole.

Remove the pot, gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Avoid banking the soil up around the collar of the tree.

We recommend planting single stem Lime trees with a stake and tie kit. For single stakes, place the stake at an angle to avoid penetrating the rootmass and knock it in until it is firm. Use a buckle tie, placing the spacer between the stake and tree.
