Plant during spring and dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. Gently place your shrub into the planting hole, backfill the soil and water thoroughly. Space companion plants 1.5-2m (5-6.5ft) apart to ensure they have enough room to grow. Water thoroughly and deeply after planting.
Water regularly during dry periods ensuring the soil is kept moist throughout the active growth. Apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture levels whilst providing additional nutrients. You may wish to apply a slow release fertiliser, although this is not vital. Pruning is not essential although you may wish to trim your shrub down to improve its shape and size, removing dead, diseased or broken branches.
It is possible to propagate Viburnum by seed sown in container in autumn or by semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
