  1. Pit preparation, width and height should be 1.5-2 times larger than the root system.
  2. Put a layer of drainage on the bottom, then add a mixture of soil with organic fertilizers on top.
  3. Water the hole abundantly, but so that there is no stagnation of water.
  4. Plant a seedling, sprinkle with soil mixture, press down a little.

A small depression should be left around the bush and a groove should be made to drain excess water. Cuttings are planted in the same way as seedlings, but at an angle of 40-50 degrees.

In spring and autumn, for better adaptation and wintering, the plants should be fertilized with nitrogen fertilizers, during the formation of the brushes, fertilized with phosphorus-potassium complexes.
