Once established you may reduce the amount of watering done to once a week. We also recommend keeping an eye on local weather and watering during periods of inclement weather such as high heat and or drought. Keeping this schedule in mind will promote healthy growth and a happy shrub.

Like most living things your Vicary Golden Privet will enjoy some light feeding throughout its life. No need to worry, the process is simple. At the time of planting make sure to incorporate fertilizer to the planting site. This introduction will be the first feeding and set the stage for the schedule you should follow. If planting in the spring with adding fertilizer to the planting site you will want to re-apply in the fall. If planting in the fall then spring will be the next feeding.

How To Prune
Once you have had some time to enjoy your newly added Vicary Golden Privet it may be time to consider maintenance. This is a fairly simple process that should occur in late winter before the push of new growth. Simply prune away any dead or damaged branches to make way for new more healthy growth. Next if you choose to do so you may prune or sheer for shape. Privets can endure a hard prune so if you are unable to see the shape you were intending also in winter make the big cuts and come spring enjoy the new growth and maintain the shrub as you see fit.
