It’s best not to plant them in soil that is rich in organic matter because organically rich soils hold too much moisture close to the roots. Monks Pepper do very well in xeric gardens where water is scarce. Once established, you’ll probably never have to water a Chaste Tree. Inorganic mulch, such as pebbles or stones, allows the soil to dry between rains. Avoid using organic mulches such as bark, shredded wood, or straw. Fertilize the Vitex Agnus castus plant every year or two with a general-purpose fertilizer. You’ll need to prune annually to control the shape and size and encourage branching. In addition, you should remove the flower spikes when the blossoms fade. Allowing the seeds that follow the flowers to mature reduces the number of flower spikes late in the season.
