All new plantings must be properly cared for in order to assure short term plant survivability and long term plant health.
Plants are living organisms – and they require some of the same basic needs as we do; Water, Food and Sunlight. Plants grown in nurseries, such as your new plants, have been cared for daily, and under near optimal conditions. Once these plants have been relocated and transplanted, it is not uncommon that they experience some “transplant shock”. Transplant shock is mainly caused by changes in environment, moisture conditions, soil type and nutritional changes.
Beautiful landscaping unfortunately does not take care of itself. No matter how much you pay your landscaper, once your plants have been installed and Todd’s Services, Inc. is gone – you are responsible for the health of your plants. To keep your new investment looking as good as the day it was installed, it will require time and plant maintenance – remember, plants are living, breathing organisms. Watering and fertilizing your new plants will keep them growing healthy and strong. Here are some tips on how to keep your plants healthy and looking great.
