Looking after your Viburnum
These Viburnum are great easy-going shrubs for the garden and will thrive in a range of positions. This variety is Viburnum tinus, an evergreen type with pretty clusters of white scented flowers in winter.
When your plant arrives, you can enjoy it and it’s flowers in a pot for a while if you prefer, just choose a cool light room or patio. Once you are ready to plant your viburnum out, dig a nice big hole and as you would do with any new planting add some rich compost to the hole to get it settled in. Keep well watered, whilst it is establishing or whilst in a pot and plant in anything from full sun to shade.
Viburnum require very little maintenance, just remove any damaged or crossing branches in late winter/early spring.
If kept inside too long Viburnum can develop mildew or other complications so if your plant starts to look limp, pop it outside on a doorstep or patio until you have time to plant it.
These are permanent plants for the garden and will grow on into large bushes. They are not very hungry plants but every year or two it will be worth giving them a top dressing of compost to keep the leaves healthy and green.
