How to plant Spindle Emerald 'n' Gold:
Begin by removing any weeds or rocks etc., from your planting area.
Then go on to digging a hole that is about twice as wide as the root ball, but the same depth. Break the soil up a bit by using your spade, around the sides and bottom, to prevent soil compaction. Replace around 2 inches of soil.̴Ì?
Remove your plant from its pot, taking away any dead roots that you can see, and loosen the root ball up a little - this encourages them to spread out and establish further.
Place the plant into the hole and make sure the base (bottom of stem), is 2 inches above ground level. Backfill the hole with the excess soil and press down to secure the plant.
Finish off by giving the plant a good watering around the base. Continue to water weekly during its first summer - it may need to be more often than this if the weather is quite hot. You must water enough as this encourages the roots to grow and develop.
