Hi everyone. I received a couple of bee brush seedlings from a local gardener. He had his plants growing in full sun. I have a limited amount of sunny areas and the only other area I could find gets sun from morning to early afternoon. I was wondering if that area would be a good spot to plant them? Do I need to amend the area with compost? Should I wait until Spring to plant them?Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Thumbs up

Typical planting times are Dec/Jan. However, planting now in Oct/Nov gives them a headstart on establishing starts. Morning sun is best, late afternoons in Tx can be brutal, Give them a good sized hole for roots to establish themselves. Show us what they give you next Spring.

Thanks Kat! I'm still trying to find the perfect spot for it, I have a couple of spots where I could plant it. One is a flowerbed on the east side of my house and the other is in another flowerbed that gets sun until mid afternoon. I need to get more soil amendments for it. Thumbs up

I have one growing next to my fence on the east side of my yard, with many plants all around it and it does fine.
I love Beebrush. Smiling

Thanks Josephine. I'll plant it on the east side of my house then. I'm running out of space. Rolling on the floor laughing
