CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • Grow in sun or partial shade for the best leaf colour, as too much shade will turn the leaves green.

Care Guide

  • Winter hardy and low maintenance, berberis prefers well-drained soil in full sun or semi-shade - if planting in full sun, keep the plant well-watered.
  • To plant, firstly water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Keep plants well-watered, especially if grown in a pot, and feed with our specialist shrub feed.
  • Pruning is minimal, with a light trim after flowering, and any damaged or misplaced branches can be removed in autumn.
