Fothergilla plants require ericaceous conditions. Grow Fothergilla in humus-rich, fertile, moist but well drained acid soil. Mountain Witch Alder tolerates a sunny or partially shaded position, but leaf autumn colour will be at its best if grown in full sun.
Prune Fothergilla plants when dormant, in late winter or early spring. Remove any damaged, diseased or poorly placed stems to maintain an attractive open framework.
