Plant­ing a tree is one of the best things you can do in the gar­den – not only do they pro­vide a won­der­ful fo­cal point that’ll give you year-round in­ter­est, but they’re also a boon for wildlife and will im­prove your gar­den’s ecosys­tem im­mea­sur­ably.

Now’s the ideal time to plant them, too – with the soil still warm and moist, even more so af­ter the weather we’ve had this year. Get­ting them in now gives the roots time to es­tab­lish; even though above ground the tree is dor­mant it’ll be ready to flour­ish in spring.

Plant­ing is straight­for­ward. Cul­ti­vate the area thor­oughly and dig a hole at least twice the width of the root­ball. Back­fill the soil and firm it in, and stake your tree if it has been con­tainer-grown rather than bare-root. Next week: We’ve got some spe­cial Christ­mas gifts for you.
