Golden ash is a medium sized shade tree with yellow autumn foliage and fascinating yellow stems that are studded with dark buds in winter. Once established, this tree has reasonable drought tolerance.


How to grow Golden Ash in a garden

  1. Choose a position in full sun with well drained soil. Golden Ash are medium to large sized trees - be sure to plant in a medium to large sized garden away from fences, walls and buildings. 
  2. Enrich the soil with Yates Thrive Natural Blood & Bone with Seaweed and Yates Natures Way Organic Compost & Soil Improver. If the soil is clay based, add gypsum and fork in well. 
  3. Dig the planting hole twice as wide and to the same depth as the root-ball. Remove the plant from the container and gently tease the roots.
  4. Position in hole and backfill, gently firming down. Form a raised ring around the plant, creating a well so that water will go where it’s needed most. Water in well. 
  5. Mulch with an organic mulch like woodchip or pea straw, keeping it away from the base of the plant.
  6. Water deeply, once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions.
  7. Feed with Yates Thrive All Purpose Granular Plant Food. TIP: for an added boost when planting, apply Yates Thrive Fish Blood & Bone Plant Food Concentrate.
