If planting remains one of the most pleasant things to do in the garden, it is nonetheless one of the most important in the life of a plant, tree or shrub that it must therefore succeed!
The exposure, the nature of the soil, the soil, or even the climate, are all factors that will allow you to succeed in your plantation.
Plants deserve the greatest possible care from the day we decide to plant them.
Each of the advice sheets on the site will guide you on these elements, here are some main rules to remember:
Planting perennial flowers
In general, all plants purchased in pots or containers can be planted. from spring to autumn.
For planting perennials in summer, avoid periods of strong heat which require more important and regular watering.
You will then take care to never let the soil dry out because the plant has few reserves and its roots will not yet have taken place in the soil.
Planting bulb flowers
They are planted in the fall for those that flower in the spring.
They are planted in the spring for the bulbs that bloom in summer.

Planting trees and shrubs
They are planted in autumn when bare rooted but will plant easily the rest of the year if purchased in containers.
If you crash in spring or summer, take care to water well the first year and possibly install mulching at the foot to maintain humidity, which facilitates growth.
We also avoid planting during the winter because the soil is very hard and the slightest frost could condemn the young plant.

Planting Mediterranean plants
They are preferably planted in spring because it gives them time to put down roots before facing the first heat of summer.
We will also plant all Mediterranean plants sold in pots. during summer provided you water well in the evening in case of prolonged drought.
Planting heather plants
The best planting time is also in autumn.
You can also plant in spring or summer but always avoiding periods of strong heat and watering the plants more regularly.

Why does one need heather soil, the other just universal soil or planting?
