Soil: Moist but well-drained
Nandina are best planted in a moist, well-drained soil of sand, clay or loam soil within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun. They are best suited to flower beds and borders within courtyard, cottage and informal garden settings. For dramatic effect, group several together to form hedging or boundary borders to produce a brilliant display of colour during autumn.

Choose an appropriate area as Nandina roots will spread on mass. Dig a hole twice the width and the same depth as the root ball with just a shaving of soil that covers your shrub. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil in place.
There is no need to prune Nandina but we recommend undertaking a regular tidy up to remove old, dead or damaged branches. You may wish to prune during spring to keep the size compact, thus promoting denser growth. Nandina may require regular fertilisation as this will encourage a thicker and more lush plant. Keep soil moist, especially during periods of drought.
It is possible to propagate Persicaria by division in the spring or autumn or by seed in the spring.
