How To Care
How To Care
Light: Will grow in a sunny position and some that tolerate quite a lot of shade.
Water: average watering needs and doesn’t need to be watered too frequently
Fertilizer: use multi-purpose organic compost in June and September.
Temperature: The annual daytime temperature should be between 53° – 68° degrees Fahrenheit (12° C – 20° C) and night temperatures between 39° – 53° degrees Fahrenheit (4° C – 12° C).
Potting: Euonymus can be planted at any time as long as the soil is not frozen. Choose a pot slightly larger than your shrub’s and fill the container with a well-drained multi-purpose peat-free compost. Water your shrub well after re-potting to settle the soil around the roots.
Pruning: if you would like it to keep its shape prune your shrub back to encourage bushy growth. Pruning can be done anytime you feel necessary.
