Planting your Koelreuteria paniculata

Choose the Right Location: Opt for a sunny to partially shaded spot in your garden with well-draining soil.

Prepare the Planting Hole: Dig a hole that's as deep and twice as wide as the root ball of your Golden Rain Tree.

Position with Care: Place the tree in the hole, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil.

Backfill with Soil: Fill the hole with soil, gently tamping it down to remove air pockets.

Water Thoroughly: Give your newly planted Koelreuteria paniculata a generous watering to help it settle in.

Mulch for Moisture: Apply a layer of mulch around the base to conserve soil moisture and deter weeds.

Caring For Your Koelreuteria paniculata

Watering: Maintain consistent soil moisture during the early growth phase. Once established, it can withstand periods of drought.
