The Q&A Archives: Getting Shrub to Grow

Question: How do I make my shrub grow quicker? a year later and only 4 feet

Answer: Some shrubs are just naturally slow growers. Others won't grow if the conditions are not quite right. If your shrub is struggling, make sure that it is getting the amount of sunshine or shade that it prefers, be sure to water deeply once or twice a week during the growing season, and feed with a time release 10-10-10 fertilizer in amounts as recommended on the label. Hope it perks up soon!
