Berberis are best planted in a well-drained soil of sand, chalk, clay or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Berberis are well suited to banks, slopes, flower beds and borders within a courtyard, coastal or informal garden setting.

You can plant Berberis at any time of year, provided the ground is not frozen. Dig a hole twice the depth of the root ball and amend the soil with fish bone and blood, mixing in well to the native soil. Place your plants into the planting area and firm the soil, watering deeply and thoroughly to settle into place.
Water in periods of drought of when the soil dries out. Berberis do not require feeding unless the soil is lacking in nutrients, although a mulch of compost or grass cuttings is beneficial.
It is possible to propagate Berberis by semi-hardwood cuttings.
