Planting Instructions

While Degroot’s Spire can bear being planted in a range of soils, it prefers well-drained but moist soil. The shrub should also be in full sun or partial shade for it to grow more robust. When the weather is hot and dry, it is advisable to water this plant on a regular basis especially when they are planted as foundation plants. Prepare mulch for the plant before planting. It is also recommended to prune your Degroot’s Spire in early spring. 

 

 

Degroot’s Spire Spacing 

Single Row Spacing

Three feet of space between each Degroot’s Spire is recommended when planting this evergreen in a single row. 

 

Staggered Row Spacing 

Three feet is the recommended staggered row spacing for this plant. 

How To Plant Your Degroots Spire

  1. Dig a hole that is twice as wide as your Degroot’s Spire’s root ball. The hole should not be of the same length or depth as the root ball. 
  2. Prepare the soil you will be planting on. Determine if there is a need to amend the soil. For heavy clay soil, adding organic matter such as mushroom compost is a great idea. The ratio should be 1:1. For sandy soil or soils that drain quickly, adding moss or compost will improve the soil’s quality. If the soil is loamy however, there is no longer any need for you to add any soil additives. 
  3. Remove your Degroot’s Spire from its container. 
  4. Loosen the roots.
  5. Place your plant inside the hole making sure that the root ball’s crown can be seen above the soil line. If the hole is too deep, you can add back fill soil to get the right height. 
  6. Remove air pockets as you plant your Degroot’s Spire. 
  7. Once you have filled half of the hole with soil, you can add water to soak the soil. 
  8. Add more soil until you form a small mound. 
  9. Water thoroughly. Monitor the moisture of the soil around the plant and water when needed. Plants like Degroot’s Spire do not need to be watered on a daily basis. 
  10. Add wood mulch to prevent weed growth.
