Aucuba japonica Variegata ‘Gold Dust Plant’ – 14cm pot
Aucuba japonica variegata is a small, compact, evergreen perennial which has glossy variegated foliage. Foliage is a deep green with vibrant gold flecks creating an eye-catching display all year round. Best used as a low hedging solution, filler plant or in general landscaping. Aucuba japonica variegata is best grown in a sheltered position where it has protected from hot afternoon sun. Best grown in humus-rich, well-draining soil. Low water requirements once established, however, an occasional watering during dry, hot weather will benefit the plant. Ideal to be planted up into containers for a fun decorative display.
Position: Full sun
Potted into large containers
Make sure to prepare the soil prior to planting. Mixing in a bag of well-aged animal manure or compost can help to condition and revitalise tired soil. Make sure to blend compost/manure with the pre-existing soil, mixing together thoroughly. Once the soil has been prepare, dig a hole which is wider, but not deeper, than what the original size of the pot the plant has come in. Position the plant in the hole and backfill any gaps with the excess soil. Give the plant a deep soaking of water to help settle the roots.
If planting into a pot, make sure the container selected is large enough for the plant which is going to be planted. Never pot a plant into a container which is too small. Use a premium quality potting mix as this has all the added fertilisers and wetting agents required for having a healthy plant.
