Questions and Answers
How To Care for your new Spring Bouquet Viburnum
Plant in full sun to part shade. While the Spring Bouquet Viburnum does will in some shade, about 6 hours of sun is ideal for best blooming. A well-draining and slightly acidic soil is ideal, but this hardy viburnum is adaptable to most soils. Water deeply 2 to 3 times per week when newly planted and during establishment. Once established this viburnum is quite drought tolerant. However, it will perform best when watered deeply about once weekly during the blooming and growing season and more often in times of drought. Feed with a balanced, slow release fertilizer in early spring for best growth. If your soil is deficient fertilize in early fall as well. Prune in late winter or early spring if desired. This Viburnum does not require pruning to thrive, but tolerates pruning well. This evergreen shrub is easy to maintain, and only rarely encounters problems with disease or pests.
Landscape Ideas for your Spring Bouquet Viburnum
The Spring Bouquet Viburnum is great in mixed beds with gardenias or azaleas. Add a crape myrtle for height and a blue juniper for color and height contrast and more year-round interest. Try this evergreen viburnum in a formal hedge or screen. Plant 3 or 4 feet apart for a dense screen. Plant at least 6 feet apart in mixed beds or in spaced rows. This viburnum is substantial enough to be a great anchor plant to soften the corners of your home.
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.
