What is the correct way to plant something on a hill?

Planting on a hill

When planting on a slope, dig holes at varying heights along the length of the planting area, and wedge a stone deeply into the hole. Then cover with a good rich soil and plant the ground cover. The stones will help anchor the young plants' roots and keep them from washing away during a heavy rain.
