How to Care for Spice Baby Dwarf Viburnum
Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
What is the best light for Spice Baby Viburnum?
We recommend planting Spice Baby Viburnum in a space that receives at least 6 hours of full sunlight throughout the day. Although this dwarf shrub grows in partial sunlight, for the best blooms we recommend planting in full sunlight.
What is the best soil for Spice Baby Viburnum?
This hardy plant grows in a range of soil conditions, but thrives in acidic, moist, well-drained soils. We recommend using Espoma Soil Acidifier to help provide your plant with the best growing environment.
When should I fertilize Spice Baby Viburnum?
We recommend fertilizing Spice Baby Viburnum in the very early spring and again in mid fall after all new growth has hardened off. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is the best product to use at the time of planting. Espoma Tree-tone or Plant-tone is recommended for using after your plant has been established.
How do I plant Koreanspice Viburnum?
To plant Koreanspice Viburnum, we recommend 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 back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because it will retain entirely too much moisture and cause the root system to rot.
