How to Easily Care for Evergreen Plants in the UK


Evergreen plants (such as lavender, English ivy and a variety of foliage shrubbery) make excellent choices for growth in the United Kingdom, as evergreens will grow in sun or shade and a variety of climate conditions, including frost. Evergreen plants require very little maintenance. Caring for an evergreen plant in the United Kingdom is a simple process that does not require specialized gardening skills.

Step 1

Add 2 cups of good potting soil (available at any home and garden center) to the soil surrounding your evergreen.

Step 2

Fill a watering can with 1 1/2 cups lukewarm tap water.

Step 3

Use your watering can to lightly shower the evergreen plant. Do not thoroughly saturate the plant, as a light shower is all that the plant needs.

Repeat the watering process every three days. If you receive rain, you may skip watering the evergreen for three additional days.

Step 5

Remove dead, rotting leaves and branches from your evergreen to ensure proper growth and health of your plant.
