Often, shrubs can serve multiple purposes, like berry-producing holly bushes, which serve as privacy shrubs while providing a pop of color that lasts through the winter season.

Shrubs differ widely in their needs, so it’s essential to learn what your plant requires before purchasing it. In most cases, however, fertile soil and a regular watering schedule are all that’s needed to keep your shrubs healthy. Since no plant is alike, our nursery experts include clear, simple instructions with every order detailing how to best care for your unique shrub to keep it thriving for years to come! However, there are some general rules to follow when caring for your shrub or bush:
Provide Space For Growth
When you are ready to plant the shrub, keep in mind that the roots will need room to expand along with the branches. Dig a hole that’s as deep as the pot the shrub or bush was delivered in and twice as wide. Shrubs tend to spread out as they grow, which is why they are an excellent choice for foundation planting and covering certain eyesores as mentioned above. Therefore, avoid planting shrubs too close to the sidewalk or driveway.
When you’re preparing to plant your shrub, it’s important to water the well or hole you plan to place the shrub in thoroughly - this helps reduce the stress of transplantation. Freshly planted shrubs also need a more frequent watering schedule compared to mature bushes. After that, check the soil regularly using a garden trowel or a similar device that can pierce the soil. Ideally, the soil should be moist surrounding the roots of the shrub. If you have trouble inserting the trowel or device into the soil, it’s most likely a sign that it’s too dry and is due for a thorough watering.
Fertilizer is an important consideration in your shrubs early growing years and should be added each spring for a healthy start. It provides essential nutrients that kick start growth and promote longevity. Annual mulching is also a smart way to help retain soil moisture and discourage weed growth.
Protect Against Pests
Fortunately, most shrubs are hardy against pests and disease, making them low maintenance choices for many gardeners. However, it’s still important to check shrubs regularly for signs of pests and diseases, especially if you notice a change in coloration or leaf density. Pest protection can come in multiple variations - sprays, wraps, and even domed cages or wires for larger animals.

Many shrubs can also be classified as trees depending on how many feet tall they grow, and are either deciduous or evergreen depending on the growing conditions experienced. Shrubs in common garden practice are broad-leaved plants, though some smaller conifers such as Hinoki Cypress and common Juniper are also shrubby in structure.
