Osmanthus are evergreen shrubs or small trees with textured leaves and petite, often scented, white, orange or yellow flowers. Ideal for hedging or screens and low maintenance gardens.
On arrival, unpack your new garden additions, and, if needed, give a light watering. Your plants are containerised and established, so you can get planting, as long as the ground is not waterlogged or frozen (in these situations, keep your plants in a sheltered position while you wait). For the first year, keep an eye on moisture availability, while roots settle into their new home.
For shrubs, dig a hole, allowing 2 inches either side of the pot width. Try and ensure you plant your new arrival at the same level in the ground as it had been sitting at in its pot. We recommend using a small sprinkle of rootgrow to the base of the planting hole – this will stimulate optimum root development.
