Garden Ready Annual Plants Care Instructions

Caring for your plants when they arrive:

  1. Open your box and remove the plants immediately. Keep plants in their pots and water deeply. Set in a shady, sheltered outdoor location to let them acclimate.

  2. If planting in the garden, prepare your soil by adding compost. If planting in a container, fill with potting (not garden) soil.

  3. Gently remove the plant from the pot by holding the pot upside down and squeezing the sides.

  4. Dig a hole twice the size of the plant’s root ball. Plant, then refill and settle the soil firmly around the plant with your fingers.

    Tomatoes should be planted deeper, so that 3 to 5 inches of the stem is visable above the soil line.

  5. Water thoroughly and consistently throughout the season.
