Product Description

Better known as Witch Hazel, hamamelis is a winter-flowering shrub that brings something rather special to your garden with its stunning autumn colour and lightly scented blooms at a time when it needs it most.

A slow-growing, deciduous shrub with oval green leaves that turn yellow and orange tinted with red in autumn in a fiery display of colour.

‘Ruby Glow’ is a popular variety of witch hazel and produces deep red ribbon-like blooms that erupt like sparklers in winter with a fragrance likened to a mix of spice and citrus - perfect for adding amazing winter interest to your garden when most of its other residents are lying dormant. Perfect as a specimen plant for a sunny or lightly shaded area, flowers look amazing when festooning the bare branched in late autumn and winter once the colourful leaves have fallen.

Slow growing 'Ruby Glow' is a very easy shrub to grow, forming a neatly compact bush that’s great in containers and pots on the patio if you don’t have much room - so everyone has a change to grow it whatever the size of their garden.

Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot ready for immediate planting.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Best grown in a slightly acidic, humus-rich soil that retains moisture, so add ericaceous compost to the planting hole or container.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Hamamelis Witch Hazel:

  • A native of Asian woodlands, hamamelis prefers a slightly shaded spot and protection from the worst of the winter weather.
  • Like clematis, witch hazel likes to have cool roots, so grow it were the roots are likely to be shaded, such as among perennials or cover the area with a thick mulch of gravel.
  • Keep plants well-watered and grow in a sheltered area in sun or light dappled shade. South to south-west facing is ideal.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots, add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling). Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and then water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

 

Aftercare advice for Witch Hazel 'Ruby Glow':

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Hardy to -15°C, protect from cold winds as it is these that tend to cause the most damage to young plants.

 

Pruning Advice for Hamamelis:

  • Witch hazel require no special pruning; only occasional maintenance is needed to remove any growth that has been damaged over winter.
