As soon as you receive and unwrap your plant place outside in shade and water. Then plant out as soon as you are able and certainlty within 24hours. Do not add compost or nutrients to the soil, just dig a planting hole and tease the soil at the bottom of the hole with your trowel so the area is lose. Then plant to the same depth as it is in the pot. Be careful not to plant too deep if you do, then lift it out and replant, this is a common mistake. Never cover the crown of the plant. Do not forget that we are sufferening extremes of weather with climate change, so dont forget to return to your new plant over the next 6 months and make sure it hasn't dried out. It will romp away.
