Planting Essentials

Key is to regularly water newly-planted plants, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure you choose a location where your plant has enough space, which you can calculate from a variety's eventual height and spread.

Dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball. Before planting, drench the rootball. Place the pot in the hole, ensuring it sits no lower than an inch below ground.

Fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Do not compress the soil. Give your plant a good watering. Add mulch on top whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould and stones. Make sure mulch doesn't touch the stem.

Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring.

Your shrub will be sent directly from our trusted, expert growers, and straight to your doorstep. Therefore, you will receive a nursery fresh plant, which was on the growing table one day, and at your door the next.

Our expert nursery has spent many years perfecting the art of watering, feeding, and pruning shrubs, and will continue to do so until hours before it is packed. We see this as a real advantage over garden centres, where plants can be left unattended for weeks on end.

This plant will be expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box, which will safely hold your plant in place. Your plant will then be delivered via a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

All our shrubs are easy to grow, unless otherwise specified. Below we address some common queries:

  • Position: plant in full sun, and apply mulch, which will help trap moisture.
  • Soil Types: it is important to avoid waterlogged soils, which starve plants' roots of oxygen, leading to plant death.
  • Hardiness: this species is fully hardy and is well suited to the UK's climate.
