You will need a shovel, a pruning knife and water. Before planting, look at the roots of the plant. If you see dead or broken roots, cut them off with a pruning knife.
Place the roots of the plant in the hole and distribute the roots evenly in all directions. It is very important that the grafting point remains above the soil after planting. Otherwise, the plant may start rotting. If the hole is too deep, add soil to the bottom of the hole.
Now we are ready to bury the plant’s roots in the soil. Make sure to hold the plant straight with one hand. After adding the soil, compact it with your hands or feet so that there are no air pockets. Once you have finished planting the plant, you will not be able to pull it out of the ground easily if you pull it with your hands.
Do not add fertiliser, manure or other chemicals to the hole, otherwise you risk damaging the roots. Walnut plants do not need fertiliser at the time of planting.
