This is a short video on how to plant flowers. Like any plant, one of the key thing you want to remember is not to plant it too deeply. Many people make that mistake and end up making a little bathtub in which water collects and the roots eventually rot because they’re too wet. So if you’re got a nice specimen here like this rudbeckia triloba, you just want to give it a little rap on the bottom and remove the root ball from the container. Now, what you’re going to see here with this one is like a lot of plants that come in containers. It’s a little bit root-bound here on the bottom and on the sides meaning the roots have grown out, they’ve hit the edge of the pot, and they’ve started to sort of collect there, and this is a bad thing because what we want the roots to do once we plant it is we want the roots to go out into the native soil.

We don’t want them to stay in this little root ball here. So one of the things we’re going to do is we’re going to rough this up a little bit here and, again, don’t be too gentle with it. You can do it with your hand or you can do it with a saw or you can do it with your pruners, whatever it takes to sort of rough that root pattern up a little bit here. Again, it might seem like I’m being a little rough here, but the only thing you really need to be concerned about at this stage is don’t let the roots dry out. If the roots dry out they’ll die. Otherwise they’ll be okay.

So we’ve roughed that up a little bit. Now, we’ve dug a hole which is not too deep and we’re going to just pop this baby in there. Now, I can see that the top of the root ball is even with the surrounding soil or near enough. It may be a little bit high. A little bit high is not bad. It’s better than low. So now we’re going to back fill a little bit of the soil around there, Hal is going to put some water in the hole, and then we’ll finish it off later. What we’re trying to do here is make sure that the soil that’s in the root ball and the soil that’s in your yard are well-bonded so that there’s no expansion and contraction creating a schism there the roots can’t go across. So we’re going to make those two soils mix together a little bit, go together, and then the roots are going to be able to easily move out in the yard where they need to be to collect enough water to live long-term. Now that it’s in the ground, we’ve got plenty of water in the hole, so it should be pretty happy.

Don’t go out and water for another couple of weeks until that water sort of drains out and the soil congeals together. Then after that you want to make sure and come out and water this plant maybe once a week. Not a light top-watering, but a deep watering. If you take a five-gallon bucket, fill it full with about two or three gallons and slowly pour that on the plant to make sure that the root ball gets hydrated. Remember, it’s going to take a while for the roots to move out into the native soil and until that happens you have to make sure to get plenty of water into the root ball itself, but not too often, just about once a week.

    Thank you, you make it sounds so easy, I’m going to try it right now. You explained a lot and I see what I was doing wrong. I hope these ones don’t die like my last ones.

    "The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.

    And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

    And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

    And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

    Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

    And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

    And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

    But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

    Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

    He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

    For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

    Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

    And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

    For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

    For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

    Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

    When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

    But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

    Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

    He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

    But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

    Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

    But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

    But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

    So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

    He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

    But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

    Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

    Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

    Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

    Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

    All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

    That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

    Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

    He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

    The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

    The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

    As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

    The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

    And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

    Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

    Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

    So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

    And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

    Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

    And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

    And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

    Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

    And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

    And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

    And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief" (Matthew 13 KJV).

    The Lord Jesus Christ loves you so much!
    "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).

    Thank you for reading.
    "The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace" (Numbers 6:24-26).

    Have a good day! Amen in Jesus Christ most precious name!
