Make sure you choose a suitable site that will accommodate the ultimate height and spread of your shrubs and trees. Amend the planting area with plenty of organic matter, whilst mixing thoroughly into the native soil. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle soil in place.
Remove spent flowers before they have a chance to go to seed. In winter, you may wish to remove dead, damaged or old wood. Pruning will encourage a bushier growth habit. Apply a layer of mulch annually to retain moisture and suppress weeds. In early summer, apply a balance liquid fertiliser to encourage healthy growth. Water frequently throughout active growth.
It is possible to propagate Vitex by seed sown in autumn or spring by semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
