Berberis Thunbergii Atropurpurea Japanese Barberry Hedging Plants
Berberis Thunbergii Atropurpurea
40-60 cm Bare Root Hedging Plants
Red Leaf Japanese Barberry
Berberis will flourish in most well drained soils tolerating all but the poorest of soils. Plant in full sun for best foliage and flowering. Berberis is fully hardy and tolerates exposed locations. Prune to shape in spring removing older wood to base.
Attractive autumn colour and spiney growth which can deter unwanted visitors! All round tough plant suitable for problem areas and ideal for fast growing screening and hedging. Berry producing.
The planting season is between November and late March while the plant is in dormant growth. Dig a reasonable hole and plant with either some rose, tree and shrub compost or any organic matter (but not fresh manure, well rotted is fine) and plant with some bone meal or fish, blood and bone as this will encourage quick root growth.
Do not water once planted (unless the ground is very dry), so the plant will find it's own water (make it work for it's water, creating strong root growth)
Plant 4 per metre in a staggered row (in a double row 50cm apart and the rows 30cm apart) clipping the top leader on planting to encourage bushy growth.
Once established this plant will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
These plants are bare root and 40-60cm tall.
These are transplants not seedlings.
