Planting & Care

 

1. Planting: Choose a location where your Wintergreen will receive full or partial sunlight (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). If you live in an area with high heat, they will do best with some afternoon shade and well-drained soil.

When you're ready to plant your Wintergreen, dig a hole the same depth as the root ball and twice as wide. Place the shrub upright into the hole ensuring it is straight and begin to back fill the hole, watering every couple inches to prevent air pockets from forming. Finally, to help retain moisture in the soil, apply a 2- to 3-inch deep layer of mulch around the base of the Wintergreen Boxwood, extending 12 inches past the foliage.

2. Watering: Water deeply to ensure the roots are getting adequate moisture (generally one or two waterings per week will suffice). Once the Wintergreen is established, it will need a weekly watering during periods of drought or extreme heat.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced shrub fertilizer formula such as 10-10-10 in spring, before new growth emerges for your Wintergreen

4. Pruning: Left unpruned, Wintergreens will grow into neat tufts of green naturally. However, these shrubs can be pruned into any shape - pruning should be done after the last frost for the season so that no new growth is damaged by frost.
