Why We Love It

The arching branches of Cotoneaster franchetti make it a striking addition to your garden.

It has grey-green leaves and bears clusters of small white-to-pink flowers in summer, followed by orange-red fruit in autumn into winter, which are a real treat for the birds.

How to Plant

Plant this shrub in full or partial sun. It grows in most moist, well-drained soil types of any pH value.

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

You can also grow your Cotoneaster in containers, but you’ll need to make sure that you select a pot that is deep and wide enough to take into account its height and spread. Then grab your spade, watering can, peat-free compost and fertiliser.

  1. Add compost and fertiliser to the base of your pot.
  2. While wearing gloves, gently tease the roots from the rootball and put your plant in place.
  3. Backfill with soil and then water thoroughly.
