I was so surprised when I picked up my Chindo Sweet Viburnum. It was so big and healthy. Due to recent foot surgery, I had to wait about 2 weeks to plant it . It is now safely in the ground and looking very happy. Idug a very large hole and amended the soil with Mushroom compost. Looking forward to seeing it bloom.
