Helpful Hint: No pruning or fertilzer, compost is fertilizer too, to trees or shrubs after August 1st-it promotes new growth which will freeze off in the winter resulting in winter kill of the plant. Water heavily until freeze-up, especially on newly planted material or in a year suffering from drought. When planting trees/shrubs it is best to not use any fertilizer in the hole, except bonemeal, which should be worked in with the soil & peatmoss should be worked well into the soil,around the roots, as well. Allow lots of room in the hole for the roots to spead out. If the root is pot bound make several long slashes from top to bottom of the root allowing the roots to escape. Water the hole well. It is very important to have the water in the hole where the roots are trying to get established. Cover in the roots with the soil you removed from the hole & tamp lightly working around the root ball & fill the hole with soil. Create a 'basin' effect to catch the water. Water well once a week even in the rain.
