How do you plant a butterfly bush? Planting a butterfly bush is a particularly hard job; it takes time patience, and a wee bit of costly money. When deciding to plant a plant of any sort you first need to find where you want the plant to be. Once you have decided where to place it, you should take note of a few things, the sunlight level, the soil ph levels, and the surrounding objects. These should be taken in to consideration when buying your butterfly bush. Next is to buy a butterfly bush this plant should be able to thrive in your specific location. It also is one that colors you love. For people with smaller yard spaces these plants can be trimmed to more desired sizes. For those with a large amount of space the plant can be allowed to grow to its full size. The plant should be double checked before buying.

Once you’ve got your butterfly bush you should dig a hole at the desired location. The hole should be twice the size of the root ball of the plant. The plant should then be inserted with fertilizer and watered. Now sit back and enjoy your new plant. Be sure to water it regularly though.
