Planting snowberry

Indifferently, spring or fall but avoid freezing or sweltering hot weather to plant.

Favor rather sun-endowed spots, or with light shade, since snowberry is naturally found in forest underbrush.

  • Follow our advice on planting shrubs
  • Water regularly over the 1 st year after planting.

Propagating snowberry

Stem cuttings

It is perfectly possible to multiply your snowberry. Cuttings is a technique that is easy to succeed with this shrub.

  • Propagate through cuttingsat the end of summer and in fall.
  • Collect 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm) cuttings on the current year’s growth.
  • Place the cuttings in nursery pots, in cutting or seedling soil mix.
  • Keep the cuttings outdoors, sheltered from direct sun, and ensure constant moisture in the substrate.
  • Transplant to the ground in the following spring, or in a larger pot and wait for one more year before transplanting it.

Root cuttings

Snowberry is a very vigorous shrub. When conditions are good, it will send roots out in all directions.

  • You can make root cuttings from these.
  • Dig long roots out and cut them in 1 foot sections (30 cm).
  • Plant these where you’d like them to grow.

Snowberry will naturally spread into dense thickets. If you wish to control the spread, set up a system similar to that of the bamboo rhizome barrier.

  • A sheet of special thick plastic is buried around the plant to keep roots from spreading.
  • If setting this up on a shrub that is already well established, remember to prune the plant at the same time.
  • Indeed, since large roots are removed, the snowberry will suffer the equivalent of transplant shock damage.
