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

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 into place.
There is no need to prune Nandina, but we recommend undertaking a regular tidy up to remove old, dead or damaged branched. You may wish to prune in spring to keep the size compact and to promote denser growth. Nandina may need regular fertilisation to encourage a thicker and more lush plant. Keep soil moist, especially during periods of drought.
It is possible to propagate Nandina by seed or semi-hardwood cuttings.
