Planting & Care
1. Planting: It’s highly adaptable, but your Waxleaf Privet Shrub needs an area with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. After you’ve selected a suitable location, dig a hole that’s two or three times the width of your shrub’s root ball. Then, place your plant, back fill the soil and water to settle its roots.
2. Watering: Water deeply and regularly during your Waxleaf’s first growing season to establish its root system – this typically means watering about once a week, or when the surrounding soil is dry. Check for soil dryness about 2 to 3 inches down in the surrounding soil.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Waxleaf Privet Shrub with a general-purpose fertilizer in early spring, before new growth begins.
4. Pruning: If you want a neater, tidier appearance for your Waxleaf Privet, prune or shear annually in winter to shape it. If you’re shaping to your desired size and shape, prune as often as needed.
