Planting hole preparation
Trees and shrubs require similar planting procedures. For trees, dig shallow planting holes that are two to three times as wide as the root ball or root spread. For shrubs, dig similar holes. Another option is to rotary till the entire shrub planting bed, then dig holes slightly larger than the root balls or root spread. Wide, shallow holes encourage the horizontal root growth that trees and shrubs normally produce.
