Why We Love It

Spruce up the green in your garden with an Aucuba japonica ‘Rozannie’ also known as the Japanese Laurel.

This vigorous shrub is delightfully easy to maintain and once it’s planted you’ll only need to give it the occasional snip to keep it in check.

As it’s evergreen you can expect an abundance of deep green glossy leaves throughout the year.

When it blossoms from April to May it bears vibrant red berries to bring a splash of colour to your spring garden.

‘Rozannie’ is happy with most soils just avoid any that are too sodden.

It enjoys anything from full sun exposure to complete shade making it a versatile addition to your outdoor space that you can pop anywhere you like.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

Find a spot in your garden that's either in the sun or has partial shade. Anywhere exposed or sheltered is fine – Aucuba japonica's a tough cookie. Just make sure the soil isn’t waterlogged.

Into the Ground

Plant 'Rozannie' well and it will look after itself. All you need is a trowel and a watering can to prepare your ground for one of the least fussy shrubs around.

  1. Dig your planting hole roughly double the size of the rootball and gently pop the plant into the hole.
  2. Fill in the sides with soil and add water to firm it up.
  3. In spring, don’t forget to trim any scraggly branches.
  4. Add a 5-7 cm coating of mulch or compost to the base to bring it nutrition too.

Into a Pot

To find your 'Rozannie' a home, grab a pot, along with your compost, trowel and watering can.

  1. Fill your pot with compost – we love organic kinds packed full of nutrition.
  2. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball.
  3. Take your shrub, place it inside the pot and coat it with compost and water so it’s nice and firm.
  4. Place your pot wherever your heart desires. Why not try bringing a little green energy to a neglected corner?
