Remove the plant from its container; for a PB bag (black plastic bag) just either pull off or cut of the bag - for a rigid plastic container, lightly tap the sides of the pot and it should slide off easily.
Gently tease out any roots that are encircling the rootball with your fingers so that they are free, taking care not to break up the ball of soil.
Set the plant into the hole at the same depth it was growing in the pot, and begin filling the hole, checking as you go to make sure the plant is standing straight up. Add about 10cm of soil and gently firm it with your foot or a hoe to remove any air pockets. Repeat the process until the hole is filled.
Water slowly to saturate the soil and remove any remaining air pockets.
Use any extra soil to build a temporary berm at the drip line (the place on the ground directly below the outer edges of the foliage) and water again.
Keep the soil moist for the first year after planting. Mulch to retain moisture, but keep at least 5cm bare around the whole trunk. Check frequently; if you see yellow leaves or the soil feels dry, water immediately.

Seeds (much like their parent plants) are all not created equal and, to obtain ideal germination, may require slightly different conditions/treatment. For advice on your seed purchase, we strongly recommend having a peek at the supplied information sites below. Most native seeds are reasonably straight forward and easy to get going, but here at PostaPlant we like our product to be given the best possible opportunity to have ideal growth conditions:
