Choose a shaded position in any free draining soil. Christmas box will tolerate full sun provided that the soil remains moist. Plant the shrub at the same depth as it was in its pot. Firm the soil around the rootball and water well.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young shrubs become established. Once established, Sarcococca will require little attention. Pruning is not required other than to shape the plant if required.
