    this spring I will be installing new shrubs and trees...is there anything special I should do??? Add tree fert. to trees? Is a combination of top soil and peat moss sufficient?

    what soil type you have? around here we preach against peat moss because we have clay soil (which hold water) and you add pete moss (which holds water) you've just built a better brick, defiantly till in fert low N high P & K
