How to take care of Laburnum Anagyroides
Laburnums grow well in all but very wet soils, they tolerate some shade but they need at least half a day in the sun to flower really well. Water well after planting. Do not apply fertiliser for the first couple of months while the roots are becoming established.
This tree is hardy but it’s best to provide a thick layer of mulch around the base before winter.
