To conserve water, place a layer of pine bark over surface.  Make sure this area will still hold four litres of water.

Keep a good thick layer of soil between plant and wall of hole for maximum root growth.Place a figure eight tie around the plant to stop excess movement (d).

Thoroughly drench immediately after planting, then each week.

Make sure old soil surface is below new soil surface.
