I got the tree planted, the guys from Covington's Nursury did a great job! The root flare is exposed, its slightly above grade to allow for settling, the hole is wide to give the roots room to expand, its got 2in of mulch (i did have to move it away from the trunk a little though).

They advised to soak it every day for a couple days and apply "root stimulator" every 4 weeks. Is there an organic root stimulator?

They say for "conventional" customers to apply "ferti-lome Systemic insect drench" right after planting, or for "organic customers" to use "Nature's Guide Tree Therapy" with "mycorrhizal fungi." Is this the same thing as "Garret Juice"? If not then should I apply both?

Its been in the ground for 24 hours now and all I've done is water it. So what should I be putting down?

water it deeply once a week...really soak it. Nature's Guide makes a great seaweed based Root Stimulator that I would put on monthly. During June, July and August you may want to invest in a gatorbag which will slowly deliver 15+ gallons of water to the tree weekly.

Where is the best place to buy the nature's guide seaweed? How is it applied?

There are lots of nurseries that carry those products now, so the best place is probably the nearest place to you so you don't have to drive all over town for it. I buy those things in Fort Worth at Marshall Grain, but I've seen quite a few of them at Calloways, if you have one up there.
