How to plant Brachyglottis:
Begin by checking that the desired planting location meets the specific needs described in the plant's description. Avoid overly wet soil.
Next, dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball, but the same depth. Place your plant into the hole and back-fill with soil, pressing down the soil as you go.
Once completed, gently but firmly press the soil down at the base of the plant, and water with 2 watering cans full. Finish off by placing a 2-3" inch layer of mulch at the base.
Continually water on a regular basis for the first year after planting, to encourage best growth in the plants.
