Daphne FAQs

Take a look at some of the frequently asked questions we receive from those looking to buy Daphne in the UK. You can contact our Customer Service Team or browse our general FAQs for further advice.

When to plant Daphne

Plant Daphne in the early spring or early fall, as these seasons provide optimal conditions for establishment. Choose a time when the soil is well-drained and temperatures are mild, allowing Daphne plants to acclimate and develop strong roots before facing more extreme weather conditions. The recommended planting times ensure a successful start for these fragrant and evergreen beauties, setting the stage for their lush growth and aromatic blooms in your garden.

How to Plant Daphne

Plant Daphne in well-drained soil with partial to full sunlight during early spring or fall. Choose a location with slightly acidic to neutral soil, amending it with compost for improved fertility. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, plant the Daphne at the same depth as its container, and backfill with soil. Water thoroughly, apply mulch to retain moisture, and maintain consistent watering, especially during dry periods. Handle the roots carefully due to Daphne's sensitivity to disturbance. This ensures a healthy start for your Daphne, allowing it to flourish and grace your garden with its fragrant blooms.
