- A trowel
- Garden peat and compost
First, place the Weigela in a bucket of lukewarm water. Add some garden peat and compost to a large pot, dig a hole and plant it. First place the plant in shade, and move it to an area in the sun for an hour longer each day, so it can adapt.
In the garden
Weigelas love sun or half shade and nutrient-rich soil. Dig a planting hole and till the soil a bit, so the roots can take hold quickly. Set the root ball at the proper height, so that the top is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with soil, garden peat and compost, and press firmly. Water the plant right away.
