How to Plant a Tree

Learn how to plant a tree and add its benefits to your garden with a simple, step-by-step planting guide.

Plant the tree
Place the tree in the hole and turn it round until its best side is facing the right direction. Then fill around the root ball with the excavated soil. Do this in three stages: add soil and gently firm it down with your foot each time to remove any air pockets around the roots.
