- A trowel
- A pot with holes
- Potting shards or hydrograins
- Garden peat and compost (but preferably a bag of Rhododendron soil)
In a pot
First, cover the holes in the bottom of the pot with potting shards or a layer of hydrograins. Add fresh potting soil to the pot and place the tree at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Give the Daphne water right away. Place the pot in half or full shade.
In the garden
Preferably, plant the Daphne in half or full shade. You can plant it in full sun, but only if the ground is moist enough.
Plant the shrub by making a large hole, loosening the soil and then adding garden peat and compost. Place the Daphne at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the planting hole up with soil, press it down firmly and water immediately.
