Bushes and shrubs are garden plants that create the framework of your garden design. They come in all colours, shapes & sizes and there is always one that is just right for the spot you need to fill. Just as most garden plants die off in the autumn and spend the winter underground, shrubs remain above ground in winter and can provide interest and colour in the colder months.

All gardens are different and all bushes & shrubs grow best in certain environments. When purchasing a shrub, it is important to know what properties it has and whether it will thrive in the soil & light conditions of your particular garden. Some shrubs can grow vigorously and will become tall very quickly whereas others may take many years to reach their final height. It’s important to do your research carefully and take this into account to if you want to plant a certain shrub in your garden. Our shrub experts are always on hand to guide you to make the perfect choice.

Planting a Shrub

When planting new shrubs, we always recommend digging a large planting hole and mixing the native soil with a fresh supply of potting or planting soil. This ensures that your plant gets off to the best start in your garden.

Compost can improve the structure of the soil and can also be altered to create the optimal mix, according to the type of plant you are planting & also the type of soil that is native to your garden.

Reasons why you should prune your shrub?

It is important to prune your shrub to keep the plant healthy. Besides that, pruning has several more benefits. These are the most important reasons why you should prune your shrub:

  • You want to achieve a better shape and way of growing shrubs
  • The bushes or shrubs become too big
  • Remove too low-hanging or sagging branches
  • To improve the health of shrubs (always remove what is dead, weak and sick)
  • To stimulate the flowering of shrubs
  • For more, better and bigger fruits
