Seasonal effects

The appearance of shrubs changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

What do I need?

  • Pruning shears

A Calycanthus does not require much care. Give the shrub water during dry periods, so that the roots do not dry out.

You do not need to prune the Calycanthus, but you can. In any case, do not prune any flowers that have bloomed, because these will later turn into small fruits between the branches of the Calycanthus. In the spring, you can trim away old or damaged branches to keep the shrub looking tidy.


What do I need?

  • Trowel
  • Cow manure pellets and compost
  • Water

Water first
First, place the Calycanthus in a bucket of lukewarm water. Add garden peat and compost to a large pot and then plant. First place the shrub in shade, and move it to an area in the sun for an hour longer each day, so that it can adapt.

In the garden
Calycanthus love sun or half shade and nutrient-rich soil. Dig a planting hole and till the soil a bit, so that the roots can take hold quickly. Set the root ball at the proper height, so that the top is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with soil, garden peat and compost, and press firmly. Water the shrub right away.
