Planting and Care for Your 'Little Gem'

Planting Tips

  1. Location: Choose a spot that receives full sun to partial shade. This tree thrives in well-drained soil.
  2. Soil Preparation: Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. Enrich the soil with organic matter to encourage healthy growth.
  3. Planting: Place the tree in the hole, ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with the ground. Backfill with soil, pressing gently to eliminate air pockets. Water thoroughly to settle the soil.

Care Instructions

  1. Watering: Water regularly during the first year to establish a strong root system. Once established, the 'Little Gem' is drought-tolerant but will benefit from occasional deep watering during dry periods.
  2. Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around the base to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature. Keep mulch away from the trunk to prevent rot.
  3. Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth and flowering.
  4. Pruning: Minimal pruning is required. Remove dead or damaged branches in late winter to maintain shape and encourage new growth.

So much bigger than I was expecting!

I ordered two of the 100L Little gems as a feature to plant on either side of my front gate. The trees that arrived were so much bigger than I expected. I will need help planting this. Still very happy with my order though, just surprised is all
