The Q&A Archives: Scotch Broom Care

Question: What is the basic care for Scotch Broom to keep it healthy? We planted one last Spring, and it looks rather dead right now (4/8/01).

Answer: These plants often suffer some winter die back, and they may also lose rather large sections at a time for no apparent reason. Trim away any truly dead wood and it should regrow this summer. Their preferred location is in full sun with a well drained soil, excess moisture in winter could be very damaging.
