Premium Tree

Planting a fig tree.. points for best answer please! ?

I went to a nursery today and bought a celeste fig tree on a whim. It is about 4 feet tall, but there was no one around (the cashier didn't know how ) who could explain how to properly plant it.

Any advice would be appreciated! thank you

G'day claudia. I work in a semi mature tree nursery in australia and re-pot, plant and transplant trees every day...except saturday and sunday lol. We do every thing the same way no matter what the tree is and are considered premium trees in australia. What you should do is first buy some potting mix. just a bag will be fine. Dig a hole that is the same depth a the root ball or a lil bit deeper to allow for some new potting mix to be thrown in the bottom. Make the whole twice the size of root ball in diameter. Take the pot off the root ball and using a garden spade or gardeners machette, lightly prune the underside of the root ball and the sides. Prune off any stray or broken roots that are sticking out so that they are flush with the root ball. The reason you do this is to promote new root growth and root division. A bit like pruning branches. Once you have pruned the root ball place the plant in the ground with some fresh potting mix in the bottom. The top of the root ball should be sitting a tiny bit above the ground bout quart of an inch if that. Then start filling the whole with the new potting mix, pack it in lightly as you go with a piece of wood and make sure your tree is straight. Once you have all the soil in and packed with the tree straight, give it a good watering and maybe even add a liquid fertiliser. Finish it off with some mulch around the base of the tree, over the whole and make sure you pull it away from the trunk. Just so you know, figs will find you water sources and have very adventurouse root systems.
