Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select a location with well-drained soil and full shade – shade gardens and dry areas are especially suitable for the Fragrant Sweetbox.

When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s about one and a half to two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the Sweetbox in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. Mulching around the area is also beneficial to lock in moisture during the first few growing seasons.

2. Watering: Once established, your Fragrant Sweetbox is moderately drought tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water your Fragrant Sweetbox.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a well-balanced fertilizer to your Sweetbox in early spring.

4. Pruning: Prune your Fragrant Sweetbox in the spring after it flowers – this helps maintain a neat, tidy appearance.
