How to Care for Deutzia Nikko

How do I water Duetzia Nikko Shrubs?

How do I water Duetzia Nikko Shrubs?

After back filling and lightly compacting the 50/50 mix of existing soil and compost give the Deutzia Gracilis a good, deep watering. This is not to be rushed. Most of the water you put on the plant at first will run away from the plant until the soil is soaked. A general rule of thumb is to count to 5 for every one gallon of pot size. For example, a one gallon pot would be watered until you count to 5; a three gallon pot would be 15; and so on. Check the plant daily for the first week or so and then every other day there after. Water using the counting method for the first few weeks.

How do I plant a Deutzia Nikko Shrubs?

How do I plant a Deutzia Nikko Shrubs?

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Deutzia Nikko Shrubs that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil, you may need to add a locally-sourced compost or topsoil to the backfill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill soil for Deutzia Gracilis Nikko because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Dwarf Deutzia Nikko spread through the loose, nutrient-rich soil much easier than if you used solely the existing soil, which more times than not will be hard and compacted.

How do I fertilize Dwarf Duetzia Nikko?

How do I fertilize Dwarf Duetzia Nikko?

Deutzias such as Deutzia Nikko Dwarf Flowering Shrubs grow best if they are fertilized lightly in the spring once frost has passed with a well-balanced, extended-release, shrub fertilizer such as Espoma Plant-tone. Fertilize Deutzia Gracilis again 6 weeks later to encourage faster growth of young shrubs. Either chemical fertilizers or organic matter can be used successfully with Deutzias. Since an organic method of applying manure and/or compost around the roots, produces excellent results and also improves the condition of the soil, this would be an excellent first line of attack.

How do I mulch Duetzia Nikko?

How do I mulch Duetzia Nikko?

We highly recommend that you mulch your Deutzia Nikko with either a ground hardwood mulch or a ground cypress mulch depending on your local availability. Any type of mulch will do, but cypress or hardwood mulch will be of a higher quality and provide better nutrition overall as they breakdown. Mulching helps to keep weeds away that will compete with your new investment for water and nutrients. A 2 to 3-inch layer of mulch is sufficient, but remember to take care not to cover any part of the stem of the plant with mulch. It's better to leave a one-inch gap of space between the mulch and the stem or trunk of the plant.
