1 bare root deutzia plant (57283)

Plant Deutzia in any moist, fertile, well-drained soil; it will grow happily in improved clay soils. Incorporate plenty of compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Choose a final position in sun or semi-shade.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

Water regularly throughout the growing season until deutzia plants are well established. Deutzias require little attention. After flowering, cut back the flowered shoots to a healthy pair of buds. On mature plants cut back about one quarter to one fifth of the oldest shoots to their base, to promote strong new growth. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant in spring.
