Where to plant Deutzia?

Deutzia are adaptable plants which will grow well in full sun or partial shade and in a wide range of soil types. Smaller forms less than 1m tall could be grown in patio pots but most Deutzia will be best grown in the garden border in small groups or perhaps as individual feature plants.

How to care for a Deutzia?

Deutzia are easy plants to care for. Water young or pots grown plants in dry spells. Once established prune straight after flowering each year to keep a good shape and to remove old wood. Deutzia flower on the previous years growth so do not leave this too late. A high potash liquid feed in spring will boost flowering.
