LONGAN CULTURAL NOTES
The hole for planting should be twice the area of the root-ball and 8-10cm deeper which is backfilled to give roots an easy start. Build up depth of soil rather than dig "down in clay soils" Add compost and manure to improve soil.
Place in hole taking care not to disturb root system, with top root ball level with the garden bed. Fill in and firm down soil around roots, create a 4-7cm depression to act as a watering basin. Water in well.
Type of soil will influence growth rate and height.
