CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Best grown in a container in ericaceous soil.

Care Guide

  • Grow Skimmia plants in a dappled or fully shaded position, in moderately fertile, rich, well-drained soil, preferably neutral to acidic.
  • Avoid full sun, as this can cause yellowing of the leaves.
  • Alternatively, and easier, grow in containers, using a soil-based compost such as John Innes No.3 mixed with ericaceous compost. 
DELIVERY INFORMATION

Our experienced team at the nursery will always carefully package and send your plants nursery fresh in the perfect condition to thrive once you receive and plant them.
