Planting & Care

1. Planting: The Green Gable will need a lot of sunshine to develop a solid root system, so find a place in your yard that gets plenty of sun. You may need to stake up small, young trees if you live in a very windy area. And the Green Gable loves moisture, but prefers well-drained soil.

When you're ready to plant, dig a hole large enough to accommodate the tree's root ball, place your tree, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots. You can add mulch around the base of the tree for better water retention.

2. Watering: During the first few weeks, water your tree twice a week for 45 minutes. After that you can stick to only watering during dry spells using the same method of deeply watering for 45 minutes or using drip irrigation for 90 minutes.

3. Fertilizing: You don’t need to fertilize your tree, but as it matures, you may want to increase its growth and production. If you do, add a slow-release formula around the base of the tree.

4. Pruning: You can prune your tree in the winter if you like. Removing the lower branches will make it easier to stand under the tree for shade in the summer.
