Pole planting tips to get the best from your investment:

  • Ensure poles are planted in moist soils or depressions.
  • Plant them at least 60-80cm deep, up to a third of the pole length.
  • Ensure they're protected from livestock. You can purchase pole protectors from us.
  • Keep all poles tight in the ground. If they loosen, roots can break and the poles will die.
  • Remove and re-use sleeves from any dead poles.
  • Look after the growing poles.
  • Make sure the pole is the right way up.
