Forsythia are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of chalk, sand, loam or clay within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area that receives full sun. Forsythia are well suited to flower beds and borders within cottage and informal garden settings.

Ensure that Forsythia are planted in a site which will accommodate its mature size. Dig a hole that is twice the width and the same depth as the root ball. Firm the soil into place and water thoroughly and deeply after planting.
Feed a year after planting during spring with a phosphorus fertiliser. You may prune Forsythia after the flowering period and when the bush has been in growth for at least one year. Remove older stems and neaten the shrub into a desirable shape.
It is possible to propagate Forsythia by semi-hardwood cuttings.
