How to Plant a Native Plant

Ensuring adequate watering for the first year

Ideally, native plants thrive best when planted in the fall, as the rainy season encourages essential root growth during their first year. If you plant them in the ground before fall, monitor them closely to ensure they receive adequate water until the rains arrive. If the planting location makes regular monitoring and watering difficult, consider keeping the plants in their pots and watering them regularly until they are ready to be planted in the ground.
