Root Rocket Transplant Fertilizer

Transplantation can be difficult for a plant as it transitions from the nursery container to your home. While we take professional and thorough steps that ensure that your plant is healthy when it leaves our care, DIEHARD Transplant Fertilizer can help ease the transition and ensure that your plant has the necessary ingredients for growth.

Plants can struggle to adequately adjust to their new environments, and the transportation they go through can sometimes cause stress that impedes their ability to grow strong. Once a plant establish firm roots in its new home, it is able to grow abundantly and often with little care. To help your plant during this short but crucial window, DIEHARD Transplant Fertilizer can enrich your plant's soil so it can get to work feeling comfortable in its new environment.

DIEHARD Transplant Fertilizer has a unique blend of nutrients that have been tested and proven effective by horticulturalists. It contains endo- and ectomycorrhizae fungi, soluble sea kelp, soluble yucca plant extract, beneficial bacteria and Horta-Sorbe Water Management Gel. Each element helps your young plant grow strong roots in its new location.

The fungi and beneficial bacteria instantly give your plant a nutritious environment. The fungi fills the old soil with nitrogen and phosphorous, while the Water Management Gel provides necessary moisture by absorbing up to ten times its weight in water. This process ensures that your plant will have access to water right when it needs it, which limits the possibility of unintentional neglect or having to figure out the perfect watering system right away. The sea kelp and yucca plant extract give your plant organic and natural minerals that help stimulate root growth. It's essential for your new plant to grow strong roots in order to thrive.

Everything you need for optimal growth is in one packet of DIEHARD Transplant Fertilizer. Just sprinkle the mixture around the roots of your plant and watch it flourish before your very eyes.

Planting & Care

Planting and caring for your new fruit tree is easy. To get started, find a good spot in your yard or a large container. The location should have good drainage and adequate sunlight. For a container, be sure there are drainage holes in the bottom and that it is large enough for the root ball to fit with some extra room.

In the yard, dig a hole that is a few inches shallower than the height of the root ball and three times as wide. The roots need room to spread outwards, but you don't want it to sit too deep in the hole. If your soil is especially dense and compacted, you may need to go out wider and loosen up the soil.

Before placing the root ball in the hole or container, pull the roots gently to space them out a little and cut off any damaged roots. Place the tree into the hole or container, ensuring that the point at which the roots meet the trunk is going to be an inch or two above the surrounding soil.

Carefully add the soil back into the hole or add your potting mix to the container. It helps to have one person hold the tree upright while you do this. It helps to keep the tree straight. As you fill in the soil, take steps to prevent air pockets from forming by removing large pieces of debris, breaking up large, dense clumps of soil, and water a little at a time. The soil should slope downward from the trunk to prevent water pooling around the roots, but the tops of the largest roots should protrude from the soil.

Water your new tree thoroughly to settle the soil. Water it again when the top two-inch layer of soil dries out. As your tree grows and the roots develop, you can water less often. Your tree will arrive pruned, so you only need to prune it once a year, in early spring, to keep its shape and to promote more fruit development, or to keep it small if you are growing in a container.

Fertilizer is not always necessary. If your tree grows well and looks healthy, it probably doesn't need any feeding. If you are not happy with how fast it is growing, of if you notice any signs of poor nutrition, you can apply an appropriate fertilizer once or twice a year. Our trees are hardy and you should not need to spray for pests or disease.

Shipping

Most items ship the next business day unless otherwise noted


We take pride in accurate and on-time shipping dates. Of course there are factors that could delay these dates. These are estimates, and we cannot guarantee exact shipping dates. Shipping live products has its challenges and occasionally Mother Nature does not abide by our time frames. On rare occasions we have to delay shipping due to severe weather forecasts in your area or ours. Sometimes the seasons are delayed and plants take longer to reach specifications. Although these types of delays are rare, we try to keep you informed. The health of your plants is our highest concern.


Spring Shipping
Due to the nature of certain cold sensitive plants, it is best to ship them during months with milder temperatures. Spring shipped items are identified on their product page, as well as information on Northern States that ship in spring. Most trees and plants we carry can safely be planted year-round, but you may prefer planting in warmer weather. If you would like to receive a plant earlier than designated or delay its delivery date, we are happy to schedule what’s most convenient. Just call us at 1-888-286-1004.

What Will I Receive

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.


Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Pruning & Trimming

Most Fruiting Plants Are Pruned Before Shipping... At No Cost To You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.


Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
