Planting & Care
2. Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season to establish its root system, about once per week. You can reduce the frequency of watering once the plant is established. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check its surrounding soil, down to about 2 or 3 inches. If the soil is dry in this area, it’s time to water your plant.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer to your shrub in early spring for best results.
4. Pruning: Prune to shape your shrub after flowering, at some time during the summer season.
