The key is to regularly water your plants at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to select a location where your plant has enough space. This can be calculated from a variety's eventual height and spread.
Dig a hole twice the radius of the plantâ€™s rootball, and before planting, drench their rootball. Place the pot in the hole, ensuring that it sits no lower than an inch below the ground.
Fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi (ensure that you do not compress the soi). Once this step has been undertaken, you can provide your plant with a generous watering. Add mulch on top, whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, or leaf-mould and stones. Additionally make sure that the mulch doesn't touch the stem.
We advise you to apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come Spring.
All of our shrubs are easy to grow, unless otherwise specified. Below we address some common topics surrounding their care:
- Position: Will tolerate full sun or partial shade. Apply mulch when planting, which will help trap moisture.
- Soil Types: It is important to avoid waterlogged soils, which will starve a plantâ€™s roots of oxygen, which will lead to plant death.
- Hardiness: This species is fully hardy, and is hence well accustomed to the English climate.
