Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Toxic if eaten. Grow Daphne plants moist, fertile, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Choose a position in sun or semi shade. When growing in containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Daphne resents root disturbance so try to avoid this when transplanting as this may delay plant establishment.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, Daphne plants require only occasional attention. Pruning Daphne is best kept to a minimum, removing only occasional damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in summer after flowering.

  1. Help! Drooping plants

    By Tracy Cox 14-08-2016

    Can anyone help. I received my Daphnes last year but didn't put them outside until spring time this year. However, over the last two weeks, they have started drooping. I thought they may have been too dry due the the heat, but watering them does not appear to help. Any ideas as to what could be the problem?
