Berberis Plant Care and Cultivation:

The cultivation of berberis is simple. They adapt easily to almost any soil and are also climate tolerant. Heat is rarely a problem and cold does not harm the plant down to at least -20 ° C. It bears pruning very well, which makes it ideal for creating formal hedges of different sizes, also with excellent defensive skills. They are very suitable subjects for urban gardens as they have proved to be very resistant to pollution. The small-sized varieties also find good locations in mixed borders, where they enhance the surrounding blooms, or used as pot specimens. These shrubs are mainly used to form hedges or borders, even if they can make a good impression even if grown as single specimens, or in the mixed border, especially as regards the varieties with particular foliage. They are located in a very bright and sunny position, with at least a few hours of sunshine every day; they can survive even in partial shade, but over the years the color of the foliage tends to deteriorate if the plant does not receive the right amount of sunlight, and we will end up with a berberis with increasingly dark and dull colors. Let's use a good universal soil, mixed with a little sand or pumice stone to increase its drainage, and some manure to enrich it. We plant our Berbers preferably in autumn, we will be sure to fully enjoy the flowering, the following spring.
