Planting & Care
When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s about two times the size of your plant’s root ball, in terms of width, place the Strawberry Tree in the hole, and back fill the soil. Finally, water the area to settle your Strawberry Tree’s roots.
2. Watering: Once established, your Strawberry Tree is highly drought tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or check the surrounding soil for your tree. If the surrounding soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water your Strawberry Tree.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a well-balanced fertilizer to your Strawberry Tree in spring, before new growth appears.
