Product Information

One of the best plants for filling gaps in borders or for adding a stylish touch to a favourite pot, this pretty shrub will take everything in its stride and reward you with a spectacular show of bloom.

Formed by our expert growers into a wonferful stadard form, the branches literally drip with bloom in a cascade of colour.

More commonly known as the Common Broom, Cytisus is a family of shrubs native to heaths, and as such are absolutely perfect for gardens that are cold or exposed and are particularly suitable for coastal gardens.

Absolutely amazing when clothed in bloom, 'Golden Tears' is a beautiful variety with slender, arching stems smothered in masses of lightly fragrant, yellow pea-like flowers that are a magnet for hoverflies and other pollinating insects.

Drought resistant when established, brooms are used to growing in relatively poor, sandy soils and will relish being planted in normal soil in most garden borders and their compact nature makes them ideal for growing in pots. 

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Cytisus 'Golden Tears':

  • Grow broom in a sunny site in well-drained soil.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting. We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots and add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast. Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

 

Aftercare advice for Broom 'Golden Tears':

 

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Hardy to -5°C, protect from cold winds as it is these that tend to cause the most damage to young plants.

Pruning Advice for Broom:

 

  • Cytisus are easy plants to grow, needing a simple prune every copuple of years.
  • Prune straight after flowering to allow time for further new growth to develop through the summer which will then produce next year’s flowers.
  • Be careful not to cut back to a woody stem, prune near new green growth.
