How to Care for NewGen Freedom Boxwood Shrubs
Follow these planting instructions for the best outcome.
STEP 1: PLANTING
We suggest digging a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. You should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.
STEP 2: FERTILIZE
It is recommended that you add fertilizer to the bottom of the hole used to plant your newly acquired NewGen Freedom Boxwood Shrub. This will ensure a healthy start providing the essential nutrients your plant needs to grow.
STEP 3: WATER
After back filling and lightly compacting the 50/50 mix of existing soil and compost give the NewGen Freedom Boxwood a good deep watering. A general rule of thumb is to count to 5 for every one gallon of pot size. For example a one gallon pot would be watered until you count to 5 a three gallon pot would be 15 and so on. Check the plant daily for the first week or so and then every other day there after. Water using the counting method for the first few weeks.
STEP 4: MULCH
We highly recommend that you mulch your NewGen Freedom Boxwood with either a ground hardwood mulch or a ground cypress mulch depending on your local availability. A 2 to 3 inch layer of mulch is sufficient, but remember to take care not to cover any part of the stem of the plant with mulch. It is better to leave a one inch gap of space between the mulch and the stem or trunk of the plant.
