Planting Advice for Mahonia × media Winter Sun

Pot grown Mahonia can be planted at any time of the year. Choose a well drained site and dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and approximately 2x as wide. To help it establish more effectively, we advise applying Mycorrhizal Fungi root grow in the hole.

Remove the pot, gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. If your soil is poor, mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Water generously around the base.

Aftercare Advice for Mahonia × media Winter Sun

Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.

The product table at the bottom of the page gives the forms and sizes available for this variety. Please note, photos are a guideline as all plants are unique. *Pot sizes may vary. Below are definitions of terms:

Supplied Size: Height measured from the top of the pot.

Single Stem / Pruned and shaped: Classic shaped tree with a single stem that has had pruning to help create a beautiful, natural shape.
