Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Most Mahonias are notoriously prickly - but not this one! Mahonia 'Soft Caress' is the first of its kind to have entirely spine free foliage, making it much more agreeable in the garden. Winner of "Plant of the Year" at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013, this superb evergreen shrub has a useful autumn flowering period. Fragrant spikes of golden blooms give way to spherical, blue berries that will attract birds to the garden during the winter months. This compact and resilient shrub makes a useful addition to borders and containers for plenty of year round interest. Height and spread: 120cm (47").

Culinary note: The ripe fruits are too acidic to eat raw but can be stewed with sugar or other fruits and made into jelly or pies. They are used to help the milder flavour of some fruits or to make a lemonade-like drink. Young leaves are simmered in water and eaten as a snack. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants become established. Mahonia plants require little pruning but may benefit from a trim in spring, once the winter berries have fallen, to remove any damaged or diseased stems and lightly shape the plant.
Grow Mahonia plants in borders or containers in any rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade. Although Mahonia plants are hardy they will appreciate a sheltered position away from cold, drying winds. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil.
