Before planting, have your soil tested to see what amendments are needed. Click this link to check your frost dates: Frost Dates. Check the light preferences for your plant and choose your plot accordingly. Even if you have the perfect soil and ideal location, you still need to choose the right time of the year depending on what you are planting.
When you receive your plant, soak the root ball in water for 20 minutes upon arrival before planting or potting. Gently break up the root ball. This will help the roots of the plant to grow out into the soil. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of your plant. Fill in the hole tightly with soil to avoid any air pockets. Add a bit of slow-release fertilizer to help new plants to grow quickly. Add the recommended amount per fertilizer instructions. Be sure to water your plants until they are established. In addition, pull weeds out when they appear. They take nutrients from the soil.
Additionally, certain plants may need staking. Whenever they become too heavy to stand on their own, add bamboo stakes for the plants to lean against or tie up for support.
Prune plants as needed to encourage growth. If you have trouble keeping up with your pruners, check out our locally hand-made leather pruner holster here.
Lastly, enjoy your Mariesii Viburnum and your time in the garden!
I’d been searching for these specific plants for years and was thrilled to find two - and at a reasonable price! - at Maples N More. The online purchase process was straightforward and I received an immediate email confirmation with delivery information. Just before the estimated delivery date, I received tracking information and the package arrived three days later. Both plants were in excellent condition: the bare roots were well wrapped and the 18’ branches had been perfectly trimmed to an open bowl for future growth. I immediately put the plants in a bucket of water and planted them the next day. Three weeks later, I’m happy to report that both plants are healthy and all branches are showing new growth. I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you so much for the great review! We're so glad you are happy with your plants.
