Let's get straight to it... The simplest way to plant one of your new plants from Little Eden.
1. Pick a good area
Check your Little Eden plants care tips - we send them after you order. It'll let you know whether you should plant in a sunny or shady area.
2. Dig a hole big enough for your plant
Little Eden plants come in pots. You can check you've made a big enough hole by placing the pot in the hole. It should fit comfortably, with around 2cm extra all the way round, while its depth should be the same as the pot - no bigger!
3. Prepare your hole
Fork or loosen the sides of your hole so the soil is easier for your plants roots to take hold. Remove any stones or anything in the way.
If you've got some, add some manure or fertiliser - it really helps!
4. Gently take the plant out of it's pot
You might find some plants have very tight roots - all squashed together. If so, gently tease out the roots with your fingers and loosen the soil around each one – don’t worry that you’re harming the plant, as new roots will grow.
5. Place your plant in the hole
Make sure the roots are spread out and fill the hole with some soil or compost.
Gently firm the soil around the planting area.
