As soon as you receive your Viburnum lantana bare root plant, place it straight into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet before planted. Water the plant regularly throughout its growth, too, as this will encourage a solid, stable development- ensure you have a well-draining soil to avoid any waterlogging problems.̴Ì?
In terms of maintenance, Wayfaring Tree plants need very little, if any. However, you can prune during Spring after the flowering period- though the stems will not produce berries later if you do.̴Ì?
If limited to garden space, cut around one-third of the old stems to maintain healthy and fresh growth. Any new growth will produce flowers/berries the following year. If done ever year, you will be promised lovely flowers and berries annually!̴Ì?
Nonetheless, leave the plant to grow if space is not a worry- just remove any diseased/very old stems after flowering is over.̴Ì?
