Instructions for planting your LC Energy Christmas tree:
As part of the sustainable woodfuel supply chain the planting of trees is really important. To help with this we have given away 300 Norway spruce Christmas trees this Christmas to our local woodfuel customers.
All of our trees are grown in Britain and supplied by Alba Trees PLC.
Your plants can either be planted direct out into their final planting spot or potted on into larger containers to provide a larger plant for final planting.
If you do decide to put your plant into a larger container, remember that the roots will quickly fill the container and will start to spiral round. Remove the plant from the container before this habit develops too far and plant out to its final position.
Whether you are planting into a container or directly into the final planting position, the procedure is the same.
• Loosen the soil to a depth of 15cms.
• Plant the root plug at least 2 cms below the level of the surrounding ground
• Water well
There should be no need to provide additional fertiliser when planting, as the root plugs contain a small amount of slow release fertiliser which will assist in establishment for the first few months.
DO NOT PLANT WHEN THE GROUND IS FROZEN OR WATERLOGGED
