Why We Love It

Skimmia japonica 'Finchy' wears clusters of small green buds all winter.

In spring, these bloom with fragrant white flowers, which sit above glossy, oval-shaped foliage that remains evergreen.

How to Plant

This shrub thrives in moist well-drained soil of any type and pH. It will tolerate any level of sun exposure.

Into the Ground
  1. Water your plant well.
  2. Dig through the soil to loosen it.
  3. Make a hole twice as wide as the rootball.
  4. Place your plant in the hole. Make sure that the top of the roots are visible and level with the surface of the soil.
  5. Fill in the hole with soil, firming to remove air pockets.
  6. Firm the soil and water well.
Into a Pot
  1. Cover the drainage holes in your pot using stones or pieces of broken pot.
  2. Add the compost to your container.
  3. Gently loosen the roots of your plant and place it in the container.
  4. Check that the top of the roots is level with the top of the compost, approximately 2.5cm below the edge of the container.
  5. Fill the container.
  6. Firm the compost and water well.
