Now I take the plant. Set it in as straight as possible. Hold it with one hand and then fill the hole up again, pressing the plant in a little bit so it has contact with the soil. So, in case you are going to a more formal look, you remove all the grass around it. But, I prefer the natural look. So, I did not remove too much of the grass. Ok, at the moment it looks a little bit higher, but by the time it settles it is just the right amount of soil. So, that is it. Then, of course, now I need to water it. I can have a little ditch around it so the water can go in and does not run off. You see. And this pile will be gone after a few days because the soil will settle.
