Aspect: Part Shade
Hardiness: Fully Hardy
Skimmia are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of sand or loam within an acidic or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of part shade as full sun can scorch the foliage and full shade can cause them to become leggy. Skimmia are well-suited to beds and borders within coastal, cottage and informal garden settings..

At the time of planting, add plenty of ericaceous compost to the soil and work in well, watering your Skimmia thoroughly once it has been placed in the planting hole..
Skimmia require very little care and can tolerate some level of neglect. If planted in an appropriate site with reasonable soil and water, it should not be necessary to prune or feed your shrub. Keep the soil moist, increasing volumes of water during periods of drought..
It is possible to propagate Skimmia by seed sown in containers during autumn. Alternatively, you may wish to propagate by semi-ripe cuttings in late summer..
