Trees should be watered 2-3 times per week and thoroughly water the plants by letting the water trickle for 30-45 minutes to soak the root ball and surrounding areas. Shrubs should be watered 3-4 times a week, but just for 15-30 minutes. This is a dependent on rainfall. If we get an inch or more a week, less watering can be done. Evergreens should be heavily watered in late fall (November) so they will go into the winter with full moisture and the winter winds won't dry out the foliage. <BR><BR>Spraying wilt pruf or vapor guard (anti desiccant on the top &amp; bottom of leaves and needles in late November and again in February when temperatures are above freezing for 24 hours will help prevent winter drying. </FONT></P> <HR> <P><B><FONT color=#000000>Q:</B> What kind of fertilizer should I use?</FONT><BR><B>A:</B> <FONT color=#800000>When Schochary Ridge Nursery installs your plants, we use a slow release 2 year fertilizer tablet. These can be purchased from us. We strongly recommend a soil test be done to determine the proper rates of chemical needed. A good starter fertilizer is often a safe bet. </FONT></P> <HR> <P><B><FONT color=#000000>Q:</B>You offer a one year guarantee on plants you install. What if we buy the plant and plant it ourself? </FONT><B>A:</B> <FONT color=#800000>We offer a 6-month guarantee on plants you purchase from Schochary Ridge Nursery when you install them. Our guarantee does not include: animal damage (feeding or rubbing, urinating, etc.), unusual weather conditions (drought, severe winds, hail, late frost, snow or ice breakage, etc.), and neglect from property owner (not watering, planting too deep, not planting in a timely manner, damage by weed wacker, etc). </FONT></P> <HR> <P><FONT color=#000000><B>Q:</B> What is the proper planting depth?</FONT> <B>A:</B> <FONT color=#800000>Plants should be slightly above the original planting height in the nursery. If planted too deep, the roots will not be able to get enough oxygen and will die, this resulting in the decline or death of the plant. If planting in a wet location, you can plant the root ball half way above the ground and cover with topsoil and mulch to prevent drowning the roots. </FONT></P><BR><BR></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR> <TD bgColor=#808080 br=""> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%"> <TBODY> <TR> <TD>&nbsp;</TD> <TD></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0> <TBODY> <TR align=left> <TD class=verdana_body_black_small width="14%"></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <TABLE border=0 cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=741> <TBODY> <TR> <TD height=29 vAlign=center background=images/index_1_px_white_bottom.gif align=middle><A href="index.html">Home</A> | <A href="plant problems.html">Plant Problems</A> | <A href="services.html">Services</A> | <A href="sale.html">Sale Page</A> | <A href="plant.html">Plant Specials</A> | <A href="faq.html"><B>F.
