Plant to the same depth and width of the root ball and water thoroughly to settle into place. After planting you may wish to apply a generous layer of mulch to protect your plant and to retain moisture levels at the base.
In late winter to early spring, remove old, dead or diseased branches to retain a healthy and tidy structure. Once pruning is undertaken, apply a layer of mulch to hold moisture and suppress weeds. Water regularly to keep the soil moist, especially in periods of drought.
It is possible to propagate Fothergilla by softwood cuttings or layering in summer.
