Create a joyful splash of gold in the spring garden with Forsythia x intermedia 'Mikador'. From March to April tubular butter yellow flowers smother the bare upright branches from ground to tip, followed by sharp toothed leaves about 4cm long. When in flower, the cut stems of Forsythia x intermedia 'Mikador’ are loved by flower arrangers. Reaching only one metre, this compact deciduous shrub is as happy in a large container as in the border.

Grow in fertile, moist, well-drained soil, in full sun or dappled shade. To maintain a natural shape prune Forsythia x intermedia 'Mikador' after flowering, removing some of the flowering stems. In spring, the yellow flowers dazzle when this hardy shrub is planted against a background of dark evergreen foliage.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly.
