Top Tips

Best grown in a container in ericaceous soil.

Care Information

  • Grow Skimmia plants in a dappled or fully shaded position, in moderately fertile, rich, well-drained soil, preferably neutral to acidic.
  • Avoid full sun, as this can cause yellowing of the leaves.
  • Alternatively, and easier, grow in containers, using a soil-based compost such as John Innes No.3 mixed with ericaceous compost.
