You may wish to apply a layer of organic matter into the planting area to improve the overall drainage, especially if you have a poorer soil. Dig a hole that is an appropriate depth and width of the root ball ensuring there is plenty of space for it to spread out as it reaches maturity.
It is important to prune Kerria as it can look untidy if left unattended for too long. You may cut it as low as the new shoots or right down to the ground. Water your plants when the soil becomes dry to the touch, taking care not to overwater as they are intolerant to waterlogged conditions. Kerria gave a suckering habit and they should be removed when spotted.
It is possible to propagate Kerria by semi-hardwood cuttings.
