Bare Root Trees & Shrubs need to be kept moist at all times. Once your plant arrives open the bag it came in and immerse the whole plant in water for several hours before potting or planting. The roots will re-hydrate and enable new bud growth to develop successfully.
Trees & Shrubs can be planted as soon as you can dig in your garden in early spring. You do not have to wait until frosts are over. These shrubs are hardy and can withstand cold temperatures. If you cannot plant within a day or two, these plants should be potted up into bigger containers, kept in a bright location and watered regularly. When planting out, gently remove the plant from the pot.
If it is very cold in your area these plants should be hardened off before planted outside. Either gradually acclimatize the plant in a part sun location outdoors for a few hours a day or if you choose to plant, it is recommended to cover with straw or an old blanket if a hard frost threatens.
If you are unable to plant immediately, open the box to expose the stems but do not remove the wrapping around the roots, as this preserves moisture. Store the shrubs upright in a cool, humid, dimly lit location. Before planting, remove all packaging material, then soak the entire plant, stems and roots, in a pail of water for several hours. At no time, should the roots ever be exposed to sun or wind, or be allowed to dry out. Trim off any broken roots or branches before planting.
Grow in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, well-drained soils, but will tolerate dry, alkaline soil. If growing as a hedge, space plants 3’-4’ apart.
Prune after flowering each year. Cut back oldest stems to the ground and clear out any deadwood. Cut or shear back one quarter or more of entire bush to keep neat and promote denser bush if desired. Grows 12 ‘ tall and 8’ wide. Produces white or pink flowers in late spring; dark green leaves in summer; red berries in mid to late summer. Hardy to zone 3.
