Plant Brandywine Viburnum spring or fall. Create a root ball-sized hole twice as big and deep. Put the plant in the hole and gently firm the earth around the roots. Thoroughly water after planting.  

Planting

Maintain soil moisture, especially in the plant's first year. Brandywine Viburnum is somewhat drought-tolerant once grown but needs regular watering during dry seasons.  

Watering  

Mulch the plant base to preserve moisture and reduce weeds. Keep mulch a few inches from the trunk to prevent rotting.  

Mulching  

Late winter or early spring pruning shapes Brandywine Viburnum and removes dead or broken branches. This promotes healthy growth and berry production.  

Pruning

Before new growth emerges in spring, apply balanced fertilizer. Apply rates according manufacturer's directions.  

Fertilizing  

Aphids, scale insects, and powdery mildew can damage Brandywine Viburnum, although it is generally pest-resistant. Stop problems from spreading by fixing them quickly.
