Planting and care

The berberis aquifolium grows best when planted in soil that has a neutral or slightly acidic pH. Even though it tolerates soil of poor quality, if the plant starts to flounder, the gardener needs to add mulch or check the soil s acidity level.

Sunlight: Part shade to full shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Water: Medium
Temperature: temperature just above 0 C.
Fertilizer: The plant should be pruned occasionally to remove suckers and to control growth; it does well with hard pruning. The spring is the best time to cut back old growth without harming the plant.

Caring for Berberis aquifolium

    This Plant is best cared for when planted in moist, well-drained soil where it can receive little direct light. This plant should not be overwatered; it is drought-resistant and thrives in many types of soil.
    The plant needs to be checked regularly for infestations by whiteflies, aphids or scale. A sticky substance called honeydew and sooty mold are signs of an infestation. These need to be treated immediately.

Typical uses of Berberis aquifolium
