Plant barberry shrubs in borders in any moist, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade. Grow berberis plants in a sunny position for the best fruits and flowers.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young berberis plants become established. Mature barberry bushes require only occasional pruning to tidy old or misplaced stems. When pruning berberis plants remove only a quarter of the oldest shoots back to the base of the plant immediately after flowering.
