|It's Easy to Plant your Lombardy Poplar
Specific Directions for Lombardy Poplar
Your Lombardy Poplar trees will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Lombardy Poplars prefer full sunlight, but can tolerate shade. Plant your Lombardy Poplar Trees about 8 feet apart to create a wind breaking privacy screen.
Lombardy Poplars will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Make sure that your Lombardy Poplars don't sit in a low area of your yard that collects standing water. Your soil should be kept moist, but not over saturated.
Every year in the early Spring and early Fall fertilize your Lombardy Poplar Trees with a fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. We recommend using formula 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lombardy Poplar.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Lombardy Poplar gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
