    Plant it, is it in a pot or is it bare root?

  • Bare root.

  • Prepare your planting hole deep and wide enough to allow the roots to spread out.  You can add Bonemeal to the soil to help root development.......backfill and tread ( carefully ) in so that the plant is secure.  Use a stake for support if in a very windy location but don't fix it too tightly.......the plant will benefit from some flexing to help the root system develop properly.

    Am surprised the supplier doesn't offer basic planting instructions......either with the plant or in the catalogue/description.image

    Soak the roots before planting, look for the soil mark on the trunk and plant it so it's at the same level with the soil
