Environmental conditions in Alabama make it possible to grow healthy ornamental plants throughout the state. Success in growing landscape plants, however, depends on many things, including preparing the soil and planting correctly, fertilizing, pruning, and controlling insects, diseases, and other pests. This eight-page publication contains guidelines for success, with detailed illustrations for planting balled and burlapped plants, bare-root and container-grown plants, as well as for pruning, staking, and guying newly planted trees.
