Question: What Is the Correct Method for Planting Shrubs?
Planting shrubs is not as easy as digging a hole in the ground and inserting the plants. If you take some care in planting bushes properly, your work will usually be rewarded with healthier specimens...
Answer:

Planting shrubs properly begins with the selection of a suitable location. You should also dig the hole in the manner that the pros do and provide adequate care after planting. I discuss all this and further instructions in my full article on transplanting shrubs.

In the next FAQ on garden shrubs, I'll provide you with a solution to a problem commonly faced when planting shrubs: namely, how to keep them from "cooking" to death in the relentless summer sunshine before they can become established.
