The best time to plant shrubs during the year is preferably the fall, while spring is an alternative option. Your going to need gardening gloves, a shovel, the shrub, burlap, pruning shears, water, and mulch.

- Pull the container off of the root ball in a delicate manner and make sure the roots are not keeping it stuck.
- Trim or prune away any roots that are either rubbing, tangled, or dead. If you do this, the shrub will have a much faster opportunity to grow properly.
