These early bloomers are among the first plants of Spring to burst with colour.  With their vibrant yellow flowers, this perennial shrub can add some major curb appeal to your home and garden. While fairly low maintenance and easy to maintain there are a few things you can do to ensure your Forsythia looks beautiful year after year.

Plant Forsythia someplace it can enjoy full sun.  Although it can tolerate partial light it is suggested that Forsythia gets around six hours of sunlight each day.  Receiving less sun will reduce your plant’s ability to flower.

Forsythia prefers to be grown in well-drained soil so avoid planting Forsythia in overly wet or marshy areas.  Forsythia grows best when watered regularly but can tolerate periods of decreased watering.

It is best to fertilize Forsythia once every couple of months in the Spring and Summer using a balanced fertilizer.  Do not fertilize them in the Fall or Winter months.

Prune Forsythia annually to ensure it doesn’t become overgrown and to ensure it keeps its preferred shape.  It is best to prune Forsythia after its blooms fade in the Spring.  Pruning Forsythia in the late Summer or Fall will reduce the number of flowers the following season since they bloom on old wood.
