Why We Love It

Enjoy fragrant clusters of cheery yellow blooms with the eye-catching 'Lionel Fortescue'.

This upright evergreen shrub retains its leather-textured leaves all year round and produces dark blue-black berries during the winter.

How to Plant

Plant your new mahonia from May to September. It loves full or partial shade and is happiest in a sheltered spot. While it isn't fussy about soil type, check to make sure it isn't waterlogged.

Into the Ground

Get your mahonia cosy. You'll need a trowel, container, potting compost, mycorrhizal fungi and a watering can.

  1. Fill your container with potting compost.
  2. Dig a planting hole twice the size of the rootball. Add a dusting of mycorrhizal fungi and place it in.
  3. Fill with compost and firm down. Water it in well.
  4. Prune annually to keep it healthy – this is best done after the berries have fallen in spring.
  5. Keep your plant well-nourished with a mulch of compost every spring and autumn.

Into a Pot

  1. Ready to give your shrub a new home? Gather a trowel, compost, mycorrhizal fungi and a watering can.
  2. Choose your planting spot, and allow plenty of space around the plant.
  3. Mix some compost into the soil.
  4. Make a planting hole double the size of the rootball. Sprinkle in compost and mycorrhizal fungi.
  5. Place the shrub in and firm well. Then, water in.
  6. Every spring, give your plant a good pruning after the berries have fallen.
  7. In spring and autumn, apply a mulch of compost around the base of the plant.
