#ProPlantTips for Care:Plant your Show Off® Forsythia shrubs in full sun or partial shade, but you’ll enjoy far more flowers in 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Give them well-drained soil that sheds water quickly after a rainfall. If needed, mound up an elevated planting site with additional soil 18 inches high by three feet wide and plant in that mound.
Apply a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Keep container plants well-hydrated, as well. Providing a good layer of mulch will help keep the root system cool and moist. Prune right after flowering is done. Every so often, prune the largest, thickest canes out at ground level to keep your shrub rejuvenated and healthy. Deer don’t prefer the taste. However, deer are hungry and curious. Apply repellent when you plant, and reapply according to label directions.
