Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, select an area with full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight) and well-drained soil.
When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s large enough to accommodate your tree’s root ball, place your tree and backfill the surrounding soil. We recommend mulching to finish and conserve moisture, and watering to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Ensure your water your Red Buckeye regularly, about once or twice weekly. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your tree.
