  1. Purchase a potted flower.

  2. Choose your planting area according to the sun/shade requirements of the plant you purchased.

  3. Add Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch to get your plant to flower more vigorously.

  4. Dig a hole, about twice as large as the diameter of the flower's pot.

  5. Spread a layer of loose dirt around the base of the root ball.

  6. Mulch the plant to a depth of about two inches with a good dense mulch, about two inches out from the stem to the edge of the outer leaves or branches.

  7. Water your plant one more time through the mulch and then periodically every three or four days or so if you find that the soil is becoming dry.

  8. Sun and warmth and the plant's own energy will do the work from here on out with just a little help from you.
