How To Care for your new Fine Wine Dwarf Weigela
Spring or fall are ideal times to plant your Fine Wine Dwarf Weigela. However, as long as you avoid extreme temperature you can plant almost anytime of the year.
The Fine Wine Weigela thrives in full to part sun and moist, well-drained soil. Water deeply when planting and 2 times per week for the first 3 months while your plant is establishing. Once established, weigelas are drought tolerant. However, they will perform best if you keep your weigela watered once weekly when there is no rain in spring and summer. Add 2-3 inches of mulch to prevent weeds and protect your plant's roots in extreme temperatures. Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer in spring after the chance of frost has passed. This dwarf variety isn't likely to need pruning. However, if you would like to prune your Fine Wine Weigela, prune in late winter.
The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale and mealy bugs are insects that can be treated naturally with neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Weigelas can, on occasion, encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire plant must be coated in order for this method to be effective.
Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
