Additional Information

During the spring, apply a generous layer of mulch in the form of well-rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant as this will help to suppress weeds and retain moisture levels. Once the flowering period is over, cut older shoots back to the young growth and leave these to shoot for the following year. It is also recommended that you remove a quarter of old branches each year. Philadelphus are easy to grow and do not require regular feeding or watering throughout the year. This shrub does well in dry soil although will require moisture during periods of drought.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
